Druk Air to add more Indian destinations

Druk Air's current and proposed routes

Bhutan's flag carrier - Druk Air will soon be adding three new destinations- Mumbai, Chennai and Guwahati- to its existing flight routes in India. At present Druk Air operates from Paro to Delhi, Kolkata and Gaya in India.

According to the director of the Department of Civil Aviation, Phala Dorji, the expansion of routes would help Druk Air explore newer markets and opportunities. Phala Dorji said that the addition of two Airbus A319s to its existing two BAe 146s had also fed the airline’s increasing desire to expand.

“The main aim of the route expansion was to improve the utilisation of the present fleet of aircraft,” Phala Dorji said. At present Druk Air aircrafts were under utilised. He said that Druk Air operated for about three to four hours a day compared with a global average of 10 hours to 15 hours a day.
