A CN-235-220 multipurpose aircraft on order for the Nepalese Army has begun its journey home, a representative from Indonesia's state-owned aerospace company, PT Dirgantara Indonesia (PTDI), confirmed to Jane's on 30 October.

The aircraft began the journey from Bandung, West Java, on the same day, and is scheduled to arrive in Kathmandu, Nepal, on 2 November. The aircraft will make stops in the Indonesian city of Medan in Sumatra, as well as Bangladesh and Myanmar on its journey home.

The aircraft, which bears the serial number AX-2347, will be the second CN-235-220 to be operated by the Nepalese Army's Air Service. The country signed for its first airframe of the type with PTDI in 2017, and ordered the subsequent aircraft in the following year.
