Druk Air is the only airline operating in Bhutan. The airline operates two Airbus A319. There are no direct long-haul flights to Bhutan. The best way to enter and exit Bhutan is by Druk Air, the national air carrier, which links Bhutan’s only airport at Paro Valley with flights to/from Bangkok, Delhi, Katmandu, Dhaka, Gaya, Calcutta and Bogdora. Bogdora is in the state of West Bengal (India), which is the nearest airport to Bhutan. Travelers wishing to visit Indian states of Sikkim, Darjeeling and West Bengal along with Bhutan, Bogdora serves as a very convenient and nearest airport. You will have to buy international plane ticket and book hotel room in any of the above gateway cities that you choose to connect to Druk Air. The sooner you give us your travel dates, the sooner we can check seat availability on Druk Air and reserve your seats. Due to limited seating and a limited number of flights, Druk Air fills up quickly. During festival times, seats can fill up months in advance. You will also need to let us know from which city you will board Druk Air.
* You are required by the government of Bhutan to use Druk Air at least one way. The only point of entry into Bhutan if driving is Phuntsholing, which is in southwest Bhutan near the border of India.
NOTE: Druk Air has a luggage weight limit. The limit is 20kg for economy class and 30kg for business class. It's possible to pay for excess baggage, but there is a chance that the luggage will have to be sent on the next flight. Also, there is not a great deal of cabin space, so carry-on luggage should be kept to a minimum.
