With only one international airport in Paro, there are only two airlines operating flights into Bhutan; the government-owned and the national flag carrier ‘Druk Air’, and the other privately owned ‘Bhutan Airlines’. Both of the airlines schedules changes by season but there are several flights per week from Kathmandu, New Delhi, Singapore and Bangkok, either direct or via Dhaka, Kolkata or Bagdogra.
Due to the geographical location and operating challenges into the Paro airport, flights are dependent on weather conditions, the schedule timings are subject to change without prior notice. Therefore, all passengers are advised to maintain a minimum of 24 hours connection time to avoid disconnection.
