Himalaya Jet, a UK based brand new airline, upon the invitation of The Boeing Company, completed an exclusive Boeing Headquarters Tours and inspection of aircrafts on Wednesday, 26th April 2023. The tour was tailored to showcase how Boeing Aircraft flying over the Himalayas would feel with the ambiance and virtual reality. The Gurung Family that holds majority stake in Himalaya Jet has expressed sincere gratitude towards Boeing for productive discussions, simulated factory tour and bespoke experience themed around the Himalayas with a flag of Nepal at the headquarter. The Family was assisted by Miss Shree Saini (Miss America) and Mr. AC Sherpa (Honorary Consular General of Nepal for Washington Seattle) during the visit that was followed by a dinner hosted by Boeing. Himalaya Jet is one of the very few brand new airlines getting the support of Boeing Startup.
Himalaya Jet is a premium long haul point to point operator that will connect Europe (London and Paris) with the Himalayan Region: India (Delhi and Mumbai) and Nepal (Kathmandu). With owners from Nepalese origin, Himalaya Jet will look to expand its services to the USA and even Australia in the years ahead, especially from Kathmandu. The goal of the airline remains the elimination of cumbersome transit while travelling to the Himalayan Regions.
The entry of Himalaya Jet is a game changer for the Himalayan Region as it aims to fly in tourists from Europe to the region, thus making a significant impact on the economy of the region. Nepal hosts more than 30,000 French Tourists and an additional 100,000 tourists from other EU Member states annually and this direct connectivity is all set to help European Mountaineers and adventure enthusiasts looking to visit the Himalayas and tick off their bucket list of lifetime experiences like the Everest Base Camp Trek, Annapurna Base Camp Trek, expeditions to the top of the world, Safaris in National Parks or sightseeing of 10 UNESCO Cultural World Heritage Sites. Himalaya Jet will not only offer plane tickets, but also all inclusive lifetime experiences covering luxury hotels to hostels and all activities within. The airline aims to put Nepal in the primary holiday destination list of the Europeans with its slogan “Holiday in Himalaya”.
Backed by Boeing Startup, Himalaya Jet is preparing to start flying from September this year and help European tourists fly into the Himalayan Region conveniently.
