This Druk Air flight from Bangkok to Paro, through Kolkata, leaves super early, depending on the season. For me, it was 5 am, which is a tough schedule. But it gets you into Paro early in the morning, which has some advantages. Flying into Paro is always fun, with so many twists and turns through the tight valleys. It's certainly...

Clean and punctual flight. Only lasted about 1 hour, so no food. The crew were helpful and also gave running details of views of mountains.

It was a nice experience. The flight back from Paro to Bangkok was delayed about 40 minutes or so but luckily it didn't interrupt my next flight from Bangkok. I just wish the ground staff at the airport in Paro could say people something, but it didn't happen so people had no idea what was going on. The fligts itself...

We had an amazing experience in Bhutan but warn you about the airline! It is a governmental airline and they were the worst part of the trip. We had a good experience on the way over there but on the way back, they managed to damage not one, but two of our bags we checked. Both had to be replaced...

We flew J class from Delhi to Paro then onto BKK some days later. Whilst Druk air is small being only a number of limited routes the service and standards far surpass many large so called 4/5 star carriers. All flights were flown by excellent pilots, considering the challenging weather and landing conditions in Paro. Flights on time, the cabin...

Drukair KB121 from Bangkok to Paro is an early morning flight so most passengers are either tired or sleepy or both, but the cabin crew are pleasant and polite which keeps us passengers at ease. You can get a decent nap during the first half because it is still dark. Transit in Kolkata is about 40 minutes and then the...

The flight took off and landed in time. I was flying Druk Air for the first time. The cabin crew was very courteous. The meal served was good. Altogether a memorable experience.

It was a short flight from Kolkata to Paro. Altogether it took little more than an hour to reach the destination. The small aircraft was an old styled propeller driven one. But the staff were very friendly. Food was provided. The landing at Paro through the mountains was challenging, but the pilots did their job nicely.
