Shree Airlines (N9, Kathmandu) is set to venture into the international market with its first flights abroad due to start later this month.

In a statement to local media, the privately-owned carrier said it had been granted government permission to run one-off charters from Kathmandu to each of Dhaka, Bangladesh, and Bangkok Suvarnabhumi, Thailand, on September 19 and 24, respectively. Nepal Airlines (RA, Kathmandu) and Himalaya Airlines (H9, Kathmandu) have also been granted similar route authorities.

The repatriation flights are Shree's first commercial services abroad as its fixed-wing operations have focussed on the Nepalese domestic market.

According to the ch-aviation fleets advanced module, its fleet entails two inactive CRJ200ERs, one CRJ700 Srs 701, one CRJ700 Srs 701ER, and two DHC-8-Q400s.
