Saurya Airlines (Kathmandu) is planning to expand its Bombardier Aerospace regional jet fleet with the addition of a maiden CRJ-700 later this year.

Speaking to Aviation Nepal, an airline representative said the aircraft would arrive by the end of November adding to a pair of CRJ-200s already in service on flights throughout the Himalayan kingdom.

At present, Shree Airlines (N9, Kathmandu) is the only other operator of the CRJ-700 in Nepal employing a single jet.
