Bhutan’s only international airport is located in Paro, in western Bhutan. The airport sits at an elevation of 7,300 feet (2,200 meters) above sea level and is serviced by two Bhutanese airlines: Druk Air (also known as Royal Bhutan Airlines) and Bhutan Airlines. These airlines offer international flights to destinations such as Bangkok, Delhi, Kolkata, Bodhgaya, Kathmandu, Guwahati, Dhaka, and Singapore. The flight into Paro is known for its stunning views of some of the world’s tallest mountains, including Mount Everest.
Both Druk Air and Bhutan Airlines have a baggage allowance of 30 kilos per passenger for checked-in luggage, with hand carry bags limited to dimensions of 45 + 35 + 20 cm and a weight limit of 5 kilos. There are also three domestic airports in Bumthang, Trashigang, and Gelephu, with Drukair operating flights between them twice a week. Plans are underway to upgrade Gelephu airport in southern Bhutan into another international airport.
