I was booked on this airline as part of a tour. I could have chosen to book my own air, and I should have. The airport was a madhouse, and every flight was delayed, except Buddha airlines seemed to have all of their flights going out on time. My flight was 1 1/2 hours delayed. You could not hear the...

Wow a very small aircraft. Only seated 19 including hostess. Extremely hot inside with no airflow around the head. It came from hip area. I had to crawl between the seats to get to my seat I'm 6ft. tall. No drinks or food offered, no overhead lockers.

This was my very first flight with Simrik Airlines & visiting Nepal. I stayed in Kathmandu from 02/07/18 to 10/07/18 [8 nights]. My check-in at Kathmandu Airport for my short flight on Simrik Airlines to Pokhara was resonabally straight forward. Flight NO: RM157 & the baggage allowance only 20kg & 5kg hand carry. I booked my Simrick Airlines ticket before...

Took the early morning Simrik Air mountain flight, don't bother. Very old Beechcraft 1900D aircraft. The windows were so badly scratched and dirty that it was almost impossible to see anything let alone photograph anything. You could visit the flight deck and kneel in between the pilots for a view upfront. This was only for 2-4 minutes though. One of...

This basic airline runs small planes (less than 20 seats) in Nepal. The single row of seats along each side of the plane are adequate for these short runs. My two flights (Kathmandu to Pokhara and return) took about 30 minutes each and ran on time. The plane looked old, based on the condition of the cabin, but it flew...

This small private jet flight over the Himalayas is worth a trip. Flights are old but the visual treat to view all big fellas from Mt Everest, Lotche and the rest were awesome. That's an hour flight starting at 6am from Kathmandu and back

Avoid this company. We booked an Everest flight through an agent - I had to put Pokhara, this site wouldn't accept Everest nor Kathmandu as a round trip. He told us Simrik were a new company offering a discount. First day, flight was cancelled due to weather. Told to come back next day at 7. Arrived there at 6:30 following...

Have had the unfortunate experience of flying twice with this airline. Always late and without explanation. Other carriers seem to be far more reliable, like Yetti and Buddha. They delay and cancel flights due to lack of customers and don't seem to realise that it is because Of Thier Business practices that this is why they a lagging behind the...

The service was okay but on the way back to Kathmandu it was delayed without any explanation. We just needed to wait for almost two hours. The Pokhara airport was closed already and we were the last passengers taken. When you take this flight, make sure you have enough buffer time for whatever plan you have ahead.
