The Way To Bhutan
By Air: Druk Air
Bhutan's national airline is the only airline service in the country. The airport is in Paro. During monsoons and winter, unpredictable weather forces can delay flights and travelers should consider including an extra day in their itinerary.
For detailed information on flights to Bhutan please check the Druk Air (http://www.drukair.com.bt/) website.
At the counter request for left side window seats avoid seat numbers 11 and 12 as the wings obstruct the views.
The nearest Indian airport is in Bagdogra, which can be reached by plane from Calcutta and Delhi. The road from Bagdogra connects to Phuentsholing, a border town in Bhutan. It is a 3-4 hour drive from the airport. It takes approximately 6 hours from Phuentsholing to Thimphu or Paro.
