On december 2011 a crowd of distinguished guests gathered to welcome the arrival of Bhutan Airlines’ (Tashi Air Private Limited) first aircraft – a Pilatus PC 12. The PC 12 is a single-engine turbo-prop manufactured by the Pilatus Company in Switzerland. It has a pressurised cabin that can carry up to 8 pasengers in air-conditioned luxury at 30,000 feet. The PC 12 will be used for scheduled flights from Paro to Bumthang and Yonphula and also for Chartered flights locally and around the region, and also for Mountain Viewing flights.

After the Lam Neten from Paro Dzong had carried out the Chipdrel Ceremony the guests were invited to inspect the aircraft. Subsequently the aircraft carried out seven flights allowing the guests to view the Paro valley from the comfort of the new aircraft. The first passenger was HRH Ashi Kesang Wangmo Wangchuck who was the guest of honour for the ceremonies.

Following the official Government opening of the domestic air service on National Day the PC 12 began regular scheduled flights to Bumthang and Yonphula on the 18th December.

Bhutan Airlines plan to start an international service with an Airbus A320 later in the year.
