Bhutan-Singapore to establish air links

Bhutan and Singapore will establish an air services agreement (ASA) next week, according to the department of civil aviation (DCA). Drukair plans to operate to Singapore twice a week from March next year, according to the airline’s commercial manager, Tshering Penjor. But he said that this would also depend on when Drukair is able to acquire a third airbus jet. Drukair will also have the rights to operate to Singapore through Kolkata, India and Dhaka, Bangladesh.
