Flights to Bhutan

Bhutan may be a small kingdom, but they have some pretty big ideas. The idea of Gross National Happiness is one of them. In Bhutan, the happiness of the people is more important than money. It’s the only country in the world where Vajrayana Bhuddism is the main religion, and is known for its harmonious culture and stunning natural scenery. Visit for yourself and find out just why people call Bhutan “The Last Shangri-La”.

Bhutan operates a daily “Tourist Tariff”. This fee covers your accommodation, meals, tour guide, internal ground transport, camping equipment, internal taxes, and a royalty charge. The price is around $200-250*(about £124.70-155.90) per person per day. The fee doesn’t cover alcohol and tips, and only covers standard accommodation. If you want to stay in the lap of luxury you may have to pay a slight supplement.

Airports in Bhutan

Paro Airport (PBH) is Bhutan’s only international airport. It’s considered to be one of the most challenging places to land in the world, as it’s surrounded by soaring 18 thousand feet high peaks. As you can imagine, the landing makes for a pretty fantastic experience. Only a handful of pilots are qualified to land at the airport.

Airlines that fly to Bhutan

There are no direct flights from Britain to Bhutan. Druk Air flies into the country from a range of Asian and Indian destinations, and was the first airline to offer the service. Bhutan Airlines flies from Bangkok, Kathmandu, and Kolkata.

Getting to your destination

Ground transportation and a tour guide are both covered by the tourist tariff. Your guide should meet you at the airport and help you to get to your accommodation.
