Druk Air – Royal Bhutan Airlines

Getting Here and Around

Stepping out of its self imposed isolation, Bhutan felt the need to open up the skies. And so, the concept of a national airline was born on April 5, 1981. Druk Air began operations on February 11, 1983, from Paro, a picturesque valley in western Bhutan, a 65 km drive away from the capital, Thimphu. At the time, Paro had a little airstrip for helicopters.
