Summit Air, formerly known as Goma Air is an airline based in Kathmandu, Nepal. Goma Air was re-branded to Summit Air on 13 March 2017. The airline operates from short takeoff and landing (STOL) airstrips of western parts of Nepal. The airline received the first of two Let 410 aircraft in October 2014, to be used on flights to Lukla and Jomsom. The aircraft are financed by the Czech Republic Export Bank.
The airline was founded under the name Goma Air in February 2011. It began to operate using Cessna Grand Caravan 208 B aircraft. In October 2014, the airline acquired one Let 410 UVP-E20 aircraft, which was the first aircraft of this type to be operated in Nepal. The airline is the only one to use Nepalgunj Airport as the main hub of operation and focuses on operating out of that base. On 13 March 2017, the airline officially changed its name to Summit Air.
In 2014, Summit Air signed a deal with Fishtail Air with the aim of enhancing Nepal’s tourism. Both Airlines are led by Bikash JB Rana, for which a collaboration was eased. Following Goma Air’s name change to Summit Air, in 2018, Fishtail Air also changed its name to Summit Helicopters to visualize the cooperation.
