Flights to Bhutan

Bhutan Dzogchen Tours can assist you with flight arrangement as well.

If you would like us to arrange flight arrangements with your tour with us, please contact us.

Drukair and Bhutan Airlines (otherwise known as Tashi Air) are the only two (2) airline that flies in and out of Bhutan. Booking a Bhutan trip well in advance with the confirmed dates of entry and exit from Bhutan will help us to obtain your seats on the Bhutan flights on your dates of travel.

Drukair and Bhutan airlines can now be booked directly yourself online, but it is usually preferable for you to ask us to make the booking for you and we don’t charge for this service. If you buy the tickets from the airline websites you have to pay for them on purchase, whereas we can hold the seats for you for a period without commitment while we discuss your itinerary with you and you take the time to finalise your travel plans.

Bear in mind also that the airline schedules for Bhutan flights are subject to frequent change, and often at very short notice, so if you can arrange flexible long haul tickets it is advisable to do so.  We advise that you leave 5 to 6 hours connection time if possible and if you can plan an overnight stay each end of your trip before and after flying to Bhutan then so much the better.

These airlines do not take any responsibility for the impact of timing changes or cancellations on any other flight reservations, and we also cannot do so, which means that you will have to bear the cost of any changes to your travel plans caused by changes to the Bhutan airline schedules.

The main international routings used to fly in to Paro are Delhi, Kathmandu, Bangkok, Singapore and Calcutta. There are also flights from Dhaka, Gaya, Bagdogra and Guwahati and Mumbai.

Bangkok flights come in and out every day with both airlines (and at busy times there are two or three flights a day) but flights on the other routings are not as frequent. Delhi and Kathmandu flights tend to be 5 or 6 times a week (although they are sometimes daily or twice daily at the peak of the season). Calcutta flights run around 5 times a week with Drukair and daily with Bhutan Airlines and Singapore flights are twice a week with Drukair. Flights from Dhaka, Bagdogra and Guwahati are usually twice a week in each direction.

Druk Air uses an airbus which seats 114 passengers with 20 business class seats and an ATR that seats around 40 passengers with no business class available.  Tashi Air has two airbuses with 122 seats (including 20 business class seats).

Timings vary depending on whether the flight is direct or has a stopover but are broadly as follows:
