About Drukair

Drukair Corporation Limited (འབྲུག་མཁའ་འགྲུལ་ལས་འཛིན།), also known as Drukair — Royal Bhutan Airlines, is the flag carrier of Bhutan.  Founded in 1981, ten years after the kingdom of Bhutan was gradually opened up from self-imposed isolation, and seven years after welcoming its first foreign visitors, the airline commenced operations in 1983 with flights from Kolkata to Paro.  Drukair operates a modest scheduled flight network within southern Asia from its base at Paro Airport and currently consists of twelve destinations in six countries. Until 23 August 2010 Drukair was the only airline flying into Bhutan. 


Under the Vision 2020 Plan, the Royal Bhutanese Government has identified the requirement for improved external air links by 2017, in an effort to increase tourism revenue 100% by 2012 and 150% by 2017. Drukair is conducting feasibility studies into the commencement of operations to either Hong Kong or Singapore by March 2011. The airline's commercial manager has stated that preliminary studies show that Bhutanese traffic to Singapore would consist mainly of official travel, whilst traffic to Hong Kong would be mainly commercial, with good prospects for tourism development. Alternative airlines to Drukair include Buddha Air and Bhutan Airlines.
