Bhutan‘s first private airline, Bhutan Airlines, a division of Tashi Air, which started operating both domestic and international services in late 2013. Bhutan Airlines (Tashi Air Pvt. Ltd) first began its commercial flight Paro – Bangkok on the 10th of October 2013 followed by daily scheduled flight to Kolkata on the 16th of December 2013.

Recently they launched flights to New Delhi, flying to the capital city of India twice a week.
Flying into Bhutan’s Paro International Airport is typically an exciting experience as the descent into Paro valley brings you closer to the mountain tops than most other flights in the world. The flight between Paro and Kathmandu is one of the most exciting ones as the aircraft passes over four of the five highest mountains in the world. In fine weather, as you soar higher up, you can enjoy the spectacular view of Mt. Everest, Lhotse, Makalu and Kangchenjunga at their best.
