The Nepal Airlines Corporation (NAC) is inviting global tender to purchase two wide-body aircraft. The national flag carrier decided to invite global tender after the Employees Provident Fund (EPF) agreed to finance purchase of the aircraft soon after the government decided to act as a guarantor for NAC. The Ministry of Finance has sent a letter to the Nepal Airlines Corporation (NAC) on Sunday, assuring that it will stand as a guarantor for the national flag carrier to “We have received a letter from the Ministry of Finance which states that the government was ready to become a guarantor for Rs 25 billion loan that NAC intends to take to purchase two wide-body aircraft,” a source at the NAC told Republica. “Now the NAC will be able to bring a wide-body aircraft within a year.” Last week, the Employess Provident Fund (EPF) had written to the NAC, stating that it was ready to provide the national flag carrier Rs 25 billion.
Nepal Airlines Corporation is the flag carrier airline of Nepal. Its head office is in the Nepal Airlines Corporation (NAC) Building in Kathmandu, and its main base is Tribhuvan International Airport, Kathmandu.
Traveling gives us the opportunity to disconnect from our regular life. You get to forget your problems/issues for a few weeks, it can also help you figure things out that you would not have understood without the distance traveling can give you. We all have crazy schedules, work and a family to take care of, going away alone or with some friends can give you distance and perhaps even make you realize how important these people are for you. Like the saying says: we never know what we have until we lose it.
Another great benefit is the relaxation you get to do. It’s nice to live life to its fullest and enjoy a stress free time with yourself. Going on vacation lets us recharge our “batteries” by disconnecting us from our regular life. When we come back we feel invigorated and we are happy to be back in our day to day routine. It’s a very good stress remover that has a lot more to give than most people are willing to accept.
Traveling increases our knowledge and widens our perspective. To view new customs, different ways of living is fantastic for the mind. It gives us a new perspective about life and especially our life, it can help us change some of our habits or even create new ones. When I travel I usually make it a point to try new food, some cultures don’t have fries in their diet and they are all skinny, others use spices to give taste and not oils or fats. Discovering different values and ways to get by in life is really interesting. You also need to visit exotic new places and discover what this wonderful world has to offer.
