Based in Nepal, Buddha Air is an airline that is known for primarily offering domestic flights to over 10 different cities throughout the country. However, customers are able to book international trips as well, with examples of destinations being Bhutan and India.
Instead of having traditional travel classes, this airline has different fares depending on how much baggage you would like to check. If you only plan on bringing a small suitcase with you, consider booking either a C, D, or E ticket, as this fare has the smallest baggage allowance. For a medium-sized suitcase, you can opt for a Y ticket, while a large suitcase will require an A or B ticket.
Buddha Air does not maintain any formal agreements or alliances with other airlines, but it does have a partnership with Novoair, a Bangladeshi company, in order to help provide them with aircraft and hangar maintenance. Additionally, the airline is often compared to Shree Airlines and Nepal Airlines, as both companies operate in the same region and offer budget-friendly tickets.
Out of the 13 planes that make up Buddha Air’s fleet, almost all of them are either ATR or Beechcraft. The ATR 72-500 is the most commonly used aircraft and is best for international trips, due to the fact that it has a capacity of 70 passengers and can fly long distances. For smaller flights, such as a domestic voyage, the Beechcraft 1900D is the plane that is used instead, as it can hold a maximum of 19 people and was designed to be a regional airliner.
