Currently, Bhutan’s only international airport is located at Paro at an elevation of 2,200 m (7,300 ft.) above sea level. At this time, Druk Air is the only airline offering international service, with flights to Bangkok, Delhi, Kolkata, Bodh Gaya, Kathmandu, Guwahati, and Bagdogra. The flight between Paro and Kathmandu is one of the most scenics, as it passes over four of the five highest mountains in the world. On a clear day, you can enjoy spectacular views of Mt. Everest, Lhotse, Makalu, and Kangchenjunga.
In 2011, the Royal Bhutan Government also opened two domestic airports, with one in Bumthang region (central Bhutan) and another in the Trashigang region (eastern Bhutan). Druk Air and Tashi Airways (a private carrier) operate flights between the three airports. Eventually, there are plans to expand international service to both additional airports and carriers.
