The Nepal Airlines Corporation’s aircraft will be flying home a total of 600 bottles of oxygen cylinders from Muscat, Oman coming Saturday.

The national flag carrier’s wide-body A 330 aircraft will bring the cylinders with the association of the Nepali Embassy and the Non-Resident Nepali Association (NRNA) in Oman.

Corporation’s General Manager Dim Prakash Poudel shared that NA’s aircraft will bring in oxygen cylinders from Oman on Saturday and the same day the aircraft will fly to Beijing to bring home 400 sets of oxygen containers and other medical appliances for the treatment of COVID-19 patients.

Poudel informed that the aircraft will also ferry eight oxygen generators from China.

NRNA President Kumar Panta posted on his social networking site that efforts were underway to send oxygen cylinders to Nepal from Oman.

Earlier on May 11, Nepal Airline’s aircraft had already brought 400 sets of oxygen cylinders, 10 sets of ventilators, and other medical supplies from China.

The government of China had provided those medical supplies to Nepal at the request of the Ministry of Health and Population and in coordination with the Ministry of Culture, Tourism and Civil Aviation as the second wave of COVID-19 is gripping Nepal.
