Sita Air aims to promote tourism and offer safe, efficient and reliable air transportation services.
Sita Air Operates 4 German manufactured Dornier 228-202 twin engine Turbo prop aircraft fitted with Garrett TPE-33-10T Engine. It is an 18 seater STOL (Short Takeoff and Landing) aircraft, with single window seating, capable of landing in 35 of the 47 airports in Nepal. It is certified for both passenger and cargo operations.
The 10-T is a higher horse power rated engine, ideal for Hot and High places similar to the conditions in Nepal. The engine is more reliable, has increased maintenance intervals and has reduced hot section cost giving increased aircraft value. Operational safety and technical superiority are the major reasons for the selection of the Dornier.
