Air Ananya

Air Ananya was an airline based in Nepal, operating helicopter services.

History

After a helicopter was burnt at Jiri by Maoists and there were a couple of accidents and helicopters hit by bullets, Banwari Lal Mittal, now Chairman and CEO of Shree Airlines, consulted an astrologer who suggested changing the name of the airline. Thus Air Ananya became Shree Airlines. (Shree means auspicious beginning). [ [http://www.nepalnews.com.np/contents/englishmonthly/businessage/2003/aug/personality.htm New Business Age] July 2003]
