CAA Nepal suspends AOC of Simrik Airlines over safety issues
22 August 2019

The Civil Aviation Authority of Nepal (CAAN), has grounded Simrik Airlines for failing to meet safety standards.

The inspection team of CAAN had found that the airline was using substandard spare parts in its Beech 1900 aircraft. CAAN did the same finding in an audit in 2018.  The aircraft will be grounded until the airline replaces its spare parts and conducts the required maintenance of its aircraft.

Simrik Airlines was founded in 2009 and operates domestic flights in Nepal using two Beech 1900C aircraft.
