Druk Air to Resume International Flights from Guwahati Airport

Guwahati: Guwahati's Lokpriya Gopinath Bordoloi International Airport is all set to resume international passenger flight services from September 3, 2022. Bhutan's national airline, Druk Air, will resume its service to Guwahati, providing international connectivity to North East India with Paro in Bhutan and Singapore. Notably, Bhutan's Druk Air is the only international carrier that operates flights to Guwahati, the gateway to Northeast India.

Assam is in line to get connectivity to five more international destinations under India's International Udan scheme. For more than two years, Druk Air's services were suspended due to the pandemic. Bhutan recently opened its international borders to visitors and now, with Druk Air resuming flight services to and from Guwahati, more travellers from eastern and northeastern India will be able to fly directly to Paro instead of taking the long route to Bhutan.

The flight will travel through Guwahati two days a week," said Utpal Baruah, chief airport officer at the Lokpriya Gopinath Bordoloi International (LGBI) Airport, when contacted. The Airbus-319 to be deployed in the operation will have over a 100-seat capacity.
