Bhutan is stepping up tourism efforts by allowing a second airline to fly into the small, land-locked country. Bhutan Airlines takes its inaugural flight from Bangkok to the international airport in Paro. The daily flight takes three hours and is served by a 150-seat A320 aircraft that has an economy and a premium cabin. If the route proves popular, Bhutan Airlines said it would consider expanding to possibly Dhaka, Singapore, Nepal, Dubai, and Hong Kong.

The new airline joins Drukair Royal Bhutan Airlines, which was founded in 1981.
