We are devastated by this news. Our thoughts are very much with the families of those affected, both in the UK and in Nepal.
The Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) said the families of the victims have all been informed.
The weather was good. The plane was departing for Lukla and our passengers were heading for Everest Base Camp at the start of their trek.
We have no more information at present.
Four British tourists who were among those killed in a plane crash in Nepal are believed to be from the North West of England.
