Not finalized, but it looks like 1 A320 and 1 A330-200:
Quote: "Due to absence of financial bids, we had to virtually disqualify Boeing from participating in the race to sell wide-body aircraft," an NAC source said. "On top of that, both the wide-body aircraft of Boeing are expensive to maintain." According to him, operating costs of Boeings 767 and 777 are around 40 percent higher than that of Airbus 330-200. "That´s why the hint for purchase of aircraft manufactured by Airbus."

I wonder what the future holds for Nepal Airlines. With the recent problems, and a declining tourism industry (as a result of the FC), there will be less demand. On the other hand, more Nepalese are said to be travelling abroad, particularly to the Gulf (where there is a plethora of existing services by Air Arabia, Gulf Air etc.).
I think that the A330 would be a wise choice, as well as the A320s. The A320s would be able to service KTM-Southeast Asia and the longer KTM-Middle East legs well. A330s would do well for the larger-volume routes.
