The plane was a Bombardier Dash 8, with license plate S2-, and 17 years.
The Bangladeshi Foreign Ministry said 25 Bangladeshi nationals were identified among the deceased.
The US-Bangla airliner had been expected to land at 2:20 p.m. local time, after a flight from Dhaka.
The Bombardier Dash 8 plane had departed from the Bangladeshi capital of Dhaka. "There was a fumble from the control tower", Asif told reporters outside the airline s offices in Dhaka. The pilot entered runway from opposite side to one for which he had received permission, as stated by Director-General of Nepal Civil Aviation Authority, Najiv Gautam.
A recording purportedly of the conversation between the controller and pilot has been published online. "We still have hope that there has been some mistake on the list, or he is in some other hospital". One woman collapsed in tears after checking the list.
Survivors told AFP the pilot gave no warnings as the plane abruptly changed direction. "After that I don't remember anything, I was unconscious".
The passengers were mainly Nepali and Bangladeshi, with one person from China and another from the Maldives. Local media reported that numerous Nepali passengers were college students returning home for a holiday.
The airport has announced cancellation of all flights after accident, and those who were headed to TIA have been diverted to or nearby destinations, as explained airport sources. "However, instead of landing from the north side, the plane went towards north-east and made two rounds", said Chhetri.
"Our team will fly to Nepal as soon as the airport is open", he added.
In February, 2016, Tara Air's Twin Otter 400 crashed in Rupse of Myagdi, killing 23 people.
Its poor air safety record has been blamed largely on inadequate maintenance, inexperienced pilots and substandard management. Its airline companies are banned from flying within the European Union.
Plumes of black smoke could be seen rising from the football pitch where the plane crashed, to the east of the runway at Nepal's only global airport, in the capital Kathmandu. It has since expanded with routes to South Asia, the Middle East and Southeast Asia.
Flight BS211 veered off the runway while landing on Monday afternoon. The incident occurred during the landing but there were no injuries reported.
