We will assist you in preparing the Druk-Air sectors, purchasing and sending you the Tickets.
Druk-Air is the only airline operating in/out of Bhutan and has a limited sector of operation and that too only on certain days of the week, this makes planning an itinerary complicated, for example Mr. X wants to arrive to Bhutan from Bangkok to Paro on Tuesday and there is no flight so we have to suggest he arrive on Wednesday when Druk-Air operates and similarly for departures. And this usually increases or decreases the duration of an itinerary for a client. The airline is a BAE 146 and has only 72 seats. Getting a seat during March/April/May & September/October/November is difficult so send you bookings early.
