Getting To Bhutan
          

 By Air

Druk Air, the national carrier, is the only airline that operates flights into Paro international airport. Druk Air operates a fleet of two Airbus 119 planes and Atr planes. Druk Air flies in and out of Bhutan from:

  

  • Bangkok (Thailand)

 

  • Delhi (India)

 

  • Kolkata (India)

 

  • Bagdogra (India)

 

  • Gaya (India)

 

  • Guwahati (India)

 

  • Kathmandu (Nepal)

 

  • Dhaka (Bangladesh)

During the monsoon season, unpredictable weather can disrupt flight schedules forcing delays. Travelers are therefore advised to include an extra day in their itinerary to accommodate such circumstances while planning to travel to Bhutan. For more information see theDruk Air websiteor ask us and we will happily explain further.
