The flag carrier Nepal Airlines Corporation has started using NAVBLUE Flight Planning (N-FP) from October 29th, 2020. The airline was using the Conventional Computerized Flight Plan system before the introduction of N-FP.

Nepal Airlines, the all-Airbus aircraft operator, signed an agreement with NAVBLUE in May 2020 to make use of N-Flight Planning to optimize and enhance the flight operations. The N-FP operations went live on October 29th, 2020 after conducting trial runs for a couple of months.

Nepal Airlines is already using NAVBLUE’s Navigation+, Flight Data Analysis (FDA), Flysmart feature as well as N-RAIM and now also started using N-Tracking since August 2020. With N-Flight Planning it will be able to plan and operate on the safest routes in a highly optimized manner and further reduce operations costs.

N-Flight planning provides an approximate 33% cost-reduction as compared to present Flight Planning System charges.
