To outsiders, the landlocked country Bhutan at the base of the Himalayas, is known for its “jewelled jungles and soaring peaks”. With over 10,000km of roading built in the last 50 years, the mountainous terrain and dense jungle still causes goods and services to be delayed.
Based at Paro International Airport, Royal Bhutan Helicopter Services Ltd (RBHSL) was established on August 10th 2015, with helicopter services starting on the 5th of November.
RBHSL are the only helicopter company in Bhutan, operating two Airbus H130 helicopters. These two aircraft travel all over the country carrying out various tasks such as scenic flights and medical transfers.
