Druk Air gets new Airbus

The Royal Bhutan Airlines will be welcoming its latest generation A319 equipped with “Sharklets to commemorate the 60th birth anniversary of the fourth Druk Gyalpo. The aircraft will be arriving from Hamburg, Germany via Delhi on 15th March at Paro International Airport and will complement its existing fleet of three A319s.

The aircraft is equipped with all the latest technical improvements developed over the last ten years since the introduction of our first Airbus aircraft in 2004. Externally, the most visible difference is the presence of “Sharklets”, wing tip devices designed to improve the aerodynamic efficiency of the wings and give a fuel saving advantage of anywhere up to 4% depending on the Flight sector length. The engines have also been upgraded to the state-of-the-art “Tech Insertion” standard, which improves reliability and provides enhanced performances.

“We are delighted to have chosen Airbus A319 Sharklets. The addition of a fourth aircraft will enable us to increase capacity and to welcome even more visitors to our country thus offering seamless connectivity,” said Tandin Jamtso CEO Drukair.

“This is a defining moment for Drukair, as we begin to upgrade our fleet. The A319 Sharklet will enable us to offer our travellers a new flying experience in comfort and style whilst offering excellent value for money. These many more improvements combined together will certainly enhance our already high safety standards,” he added.
