Nepalese Yeti Airlines plane crashOn 15 January 2023, a Yeti Airlines ATR 72, flying from Kathmandu, crashed at around 11:00 am local time (5:15 am GMT) while approaching Pokhara Airport, Nepal.

The plane was carrying 72 people including 68 passengers and four crew members. Fifteen foreigners were on board including five Indians, four Russians, two South Koreans, an Argentinean, an Australian, a Frenchman and an Irishman.

The crash claimed the lives of 68 people, while four are still missing. The search, interrupted at dawn on 16 January 2023 due to fog, resumed a few hours later. The authorities stated that there was little or no hope of finding survivors.

This was the deadliest air accident in three decades in Nepal.

In September 1992, the crash of a Pakistan International Airlines Airbus bound for Kathmandu claimed the lives of 167 people. In May 2022, a Twin Otter of the Nepalese company Tara Air crashed shortly after takeoff from Pokhara, causing the death of 22 passengers and crew members.
