Drukair has added a new ATR 42-600 aircraft to its fleet.

The latest-generation turboprop aircraft, which will be used on the airline’s domestic and international routes, was chosen for its outstanding operational performance in challenging conditions.

The airline’s ATR serves small airports in the Himalayan mountains and links Bhutan with Kathmandu, Kolkata and Dhaka. Drukair’s ATR is equipped with the ClearVision system, which will provide pilots with outstanding vision and situational awareness. The aircraft features a 40-seat cabin.

Drukair Chief Executive Officer Tandi Wangchuk said: “We’ve been flying an ATR aircraft since 2011, its versatility and operational reliability have made it the ideal aircraft.”

ATR CEO, Stefano Bortoli said: “Delivering regional connectivity in the challenging operational conditions of Bhutan and its neighbouring countries takes a special aircraft and the ATR 42-600 is the perfect fit.”
