Bhutan to Singapore

Changi Airport has welcomed the arrival of Drukair, the national carrier of the Kingdom of Bhutan, which is situated in the Himalayas between China and India.  A special inaugural flight from the Bhutanese city of Paro carried on board Her Royal Highness Princess Chimi Yangzom Wangchuck, the eldest princess of the Bhutan royal family.

The commencement of this twice-weekly service means passengers departing from Singapore can now reach Bhutan in under six hours, saving an overnight transfer stay in Thailand or India as visitors currently have to do.  Singapore is only the fifth country to be linked to Bhutan by air. www.drukair.com.bt
