Drukair launches first non-stop flight between Guwahati and Singapore

Drukair Royal Bhutan Airlines has launched a non-stop service between Guwahati and Singapore. With this service, Changi Airport now has link to 16th city in India. This new route marks the first direct connection between North East India and Singapore.


Lim Ching Kiat, Managing Director of Air Hub Development, Changi Airport Group, said, “We are pleased to launch the first non-stop service between Northeast India and Singapore with our valued partner Drukair. India is the third largest tourism source market for Singapore and one of Changi Airport’s key growth markets. This new route further enhances connectivity between Singapore and India, bringing the city links to a total of 16. We look forward to welcoming more travellers from Guwahati, who can tap Changi’s extensive network to destinations in Asia such as Australia, China, Indonesia and Japan.”


From September 29, 2018 Drukair commenced twice weekly flights from Guwahati to Singapore. The introduction of this new service is expected to reduce travel time from almost 10 hours, including transfers, to 4 hours 30mins.


India is Changi’s sixth largest market, registering more than 4.5 million passenger movements in the past 12 months, growing at 14% year-on-year. Lately, IndiGo launched daily services from Kolkata and Tiruchirapalli, operating the airline’s first services from the two cities to Singapore. Air India Express will also be launching additional 4-times weekly services from Bangalore, starting from October 29, 2018. With the additional services, Changi Airport will be connected cities in India by some 280 weekly one-way services.
