A small kingdom nestled betweeen giants India and China, Bhutan stands apart as a country known for its festivals and where prosperity is measured in ‘Gross National Happiness’.
However, Bhutan has long managed its visitor numbers by carefully restricting access via its national (and only) carrier, Druk Air. But now the country is opening its doors a little wider with the introduction of another aircraft – expanding its fleet to three.
In addition, an airport is set to open this year in Yonphula, Trashigang, in eastern Bhutan. The one-runway terminal will reduce travel times to Paro to 30 minutes, and to just 15 minutes for Bumthang. Previously travellers have been using Bhutan’s only east-west road to get around.
