Their flights are always delayed, when other local airlines are on time. Delay runs in long hours. They don't update the estimated time often, you need to keep checking status which is annoying

We flew from Kathmandu to Pokhara and back by Buddha Air. It was a smooth flight. The aircrafts were in good condition. The outbound flight was a bit delayed, this was probably due to the airport congestion.
