Leading independent GSA, Flight Directors has announced the signing of a contract to represent Drukair of Bhutan in the UK market.

Bhutan is one of the world's most enigmatic countries. Perched high in the Himalayas, it is a kingdom of soaring mountains and ancient heritage, DrukAir is the aviation gateway to Bhutan offering a modern fleet of Airbus aircraft and a network of services extending from its home base in Paro to include destinations like Delhi, Singapore, Kolkata, Kathmandu and Bangkok.

Flight Directors are seeking to work with interested Tour operators who may already feature Bhutan in their programme or ones who would like the opportunity to help travellers explore this fascinating country.

Flight Directors Managing Director, Paul Argyle said: " A new brand of traveller is emerging post covid, ones who wish to extend their experiences of foreign cultures by travelling to previously difficult to reach destinations. As Bhutan reopens, DrukAIr is looking forward to welcoming visitors from across the world and the UK market is seen as one which will recover quickly. The airline makes it easy for the discerning passenger to travel in comfort to this world-class destination, our role is to assist the UK travel trade in making the most of a unique and developing market."

Druk Air Chief Executive Officer, Mr. Tandi Wangchuk said, "The reopening of the country on September 23 was a much-awaited event, which has reignited our hopes for quick economic recovery, as tourism is one of the major economic sectors that contribute significantly to Bhutan’s socio- economic development. On our part, we arranged additional flights from all major hubs to welcome the tourists to Bhutan after a gap of over two years. As we move forward into 2023, not only are we preparing ourselves to welcome more tourists but also seeking to strive to improve our service to give better experience to our guests."
