Chapman Freeborn brings private jet charter services to the Kingdom of Bhutan

Chapman Freeborn is delighted to announce a new strategic private jet partnership with Drukair Royal Bhutan Airlines, the national airline of the Kingdom of Bhutan.

Our exclusive agreement with Drukair means that the remote Kingdom of Bhutan will now be more widely accessible to international private jet travellers.

Nestled in the steep mountains of the Eastern Himalayas, Paro International Airport is considered to be one of the most challenging locations for take-offs and landings in the world and all flights require a specialist Drukair certified navigator to accompany as a guide.

Through the unique partnership with Drukair, we can now provide this service for private jet aircraft and obtain the necessary permits to operate charters to Bhutan.

Bhutan, the land of the Thunder Dragon, is regarded as the great jewel of the Himalayas. As the last Mahayana Buddhist kingdom it is considered one of the most exclusive and sought-after travel destinations.

A charter flight to Paro International Airport offers stunning views of the Himalayan mountains including Jomolhari (pictured above) which straddles the border between Tibet and the Thimphu district of Bhutan.

Pictured below are some photos of Drukair’s fleet as well as a  Dassault Falcon 2000EX twin-engined jet – an example of the type of private jet aircraft set to become a more familiar sight at Paro International Airport.
