with the reported vis at published minima 1600m, the VOR approach was a waste of time, never bothered until it rose to 3000m at least...the RNP approach seems to position one better to successfully complete the approach at it's lower published minima, so my answer to ATC watcher would be yes.I would be more inclined to operate the RNP with the reported vis at published minima for that approach, but it was the good old VOR-A in my day.....and yes I have operated both 767 and 320 into KTM on more occasions than I can count...think you missed the point of his question Bob...
