Druk Air officials say, the leased Air Bus from Greece landed in the Paro International Airport Saturday, received by a religious ceremony perfumed by monks.

The nation has leased the three-year-old aircraft by agreeing to pay US $400,000 per month until 2015.

Officials claimed that the aircraft would help reduce air traffic during tourist seasons.

Druk Air, which has started connecting Paro with Singapore from September 1 this year, is learnt to be preparing to introduce new routes to Mumbai and Hong Kong in near future.
