Bhutan’s Druk air to start direct flight from Paro to Pokhara
Bhutan’s Druk Air will fly directly from Bhutan’s Paro International Airport to Pokhara International Airport.
On September 9 (August 23), Druk got permission to fly from Paro to Pokhara. Information officer of the Nepal Civil Aviation Authority, Mr. Gyanendra Bhul, informed that this chartered flight will take place.
According to him, this flight will take off from Pokhara to Paro. Narrow-body aircraft will fly on the Paro -Pokhara – Paro route. He said it would take some time to start flights at the new airport, and now the flights are arriving gradually. He said that Druk Air coming to Pokhara is a good thing, as it will open the way for more airlines to come in the future.
He said that based on the report of the chartered flight, Druk also assured regular flights from Bhutan. We believe that there will be regular flights to Pokhara from now on. Inaugurated on January 1, 2023, after the English New Year’s Day, this airport has only one chartered international commercial flight so far. Other flights are only domestic. Nepal Airlines has started flying to three destinations from another new airport, Bhairahawa.
