Tashi Air got a new aircraft called “Dorji” on July 30. The addition of a second 122-seater Airbus A319 means that the airline can now expand its route network and also increase its dependability. The second aircraft willinitially operate the Paro-Kathmandu and Paro-New Delhi sectors. The private airline is also exploring the addition of Singapore to its network, via Dhaka, Bangladesh, and Yangon, Myanmar. Currently, the airline flies to Bangkok, Kathmandu, and Kolkata.
