A leading private carrier of Nepal, Shree Airlines is preparing for its second international flight to Singapore after the corona outbreak and country’s lockdown for fetching medical kits required in the country for Corona Virus prevention. The carrier will be flying its CRJ-700 series aircraft for the mission and it will be fetching only cargo from the country.
The flight is going to be chartered by Nepal Government, however, the carrier will fly its aircraft free for the Government as their social responsibility cause. The Government will be able to fetch all the medical supplies with no cost of transportation. Also, the medical kits are being supplied by a Non-Government Organization in Singapore. As the deal has been secured the carrier is in final preparations to conduct the flight.
The carrier is in process of getting approval for overflying various countries like Bangladesh, Thailand in its route. The company has also prepared a set of crew and security essentials already for the flight to be conducted very soon. Just a few days before, a CRJ-700 aircraft of Shree Airlines flew to Sudan chartered by Nepal Army to retrieve the human remains of an Army Officer appointed in United Nations Peace Keeping Mission at Sudan.
Because of the lockdown and regular flight schedules suspension, a very complex synchronization has to be made to conduct each flight and the flights must have a special reason to be conducted. This will be the second international flight on behalf of the carrier and both done during the lockdown of the entire nation and various parts of the world.
