Druk Air will start flights to Mumbai starting May 1, making it the sixth Indian city in its list of flight destinations. The national air carrier will fly twice a week to the city and maybe routed through Kathmandu, Nepal. It is yet to be decided if the flight cost will be slightly higher than to New Delhi. The airline had initially planned on connecting Mumbai last year, but lack of flight slots prevented it from doing so. Druk Air flies to New Delhi only, therefore the western and southern markets remained untapped. Druk Air is discussing the possibility of conducting the flights to Mumbai via Kathmandu with the civil aviation authority in Nepal because the Nepalese and Bhutanese market is a good tour package combination for Indian tourists. If things work out, Druk Air and Nepal Air will fly according to a code arrangement process. With the addition of Mumbai, Druk Air will be flying to 10 cities in five countries.
