Paro Airport

Paro Airport is one of four airports in Bhutan, and is the only one that operates international flights. Due to its scenic location in the valley of the river Paro Chhu and being surrounded by mountains, flights are only allowed to take-off and land from this airport when there is good visibility from weather and daylight hours.

The airport was initially just an airstrip, built in 1968, which was later extended and developed in 1990. In addition, a terminal building was constructed in 1999.
