Tashi Air- Bhutan Airlines
Firstly, whether you purchase through us or you buy directly it will cost the same.
Royal Bhutan Airlines or Druk Air flies to and from New Delhi,
Bagdogra, Bodhgaya and Kolkota in India; Kathmandu in Nepal; Dhaka in
Bangladesh; Bangkok in Thailand; and Singapore. The timings (and some routes)
change ocassionally for various reasons but we would let you know when or if it happens.
Bhutan Airlines or Tashi Air is justa few years old and operates at present only for the Bangkok, Paro, Kathmandu and the Indian Delhi and Kolkota sectors. Fares in Tashi Air are almost exactly the same as Druk Air and I find the services very similar too :)
The only international airport is in
Paro but recently three other domestic airports have been inaugurated in
Batpalathang (Bumthang Dzongkhag), Gelephu (Sarpang Dzongkhag in the south) and Yongphula
(Trashigang Dzongkhag in the east). Only Druk Air flies the domestic sectors.
To give you an idea of the airfares (which does fluctuate occasionally depending on the exchange rates on the day of purchase).
