Currently, Bhutan’s only international airport is located at Paro, western Bhutan at an elevation of 2,200m (7,300 ft) above sea level. At this point in time, we have two Bhutanese airlines namely Druk Air (Royal Bhutan Airlines) and Bhutan Airlines offering international service, with flights to and from Bangkok, Delhi, Kolkata, Bodhgaya, Kathmandu, Guwahati, Dhaka, and Singapore. Depending on your convenience, you can fly to one of the above destinations to connect your flight to Bhutan. The flight into Paro is one of the most scenic and breathtaking ones with views of some of the tallest mountains of the world including Mt. Everest.

The maximum weight allowance for the checked-in baggage with both the airlines is 30 kilo per passenger and hand carry bag with the dimensions limited to 45 + 35 + 20 cm.
