Bhutan’s Druk Air has taken delivery of its first Airbus A319. The airline ordered two A319s in June 2003 to replace its two BAE 146-100s after BAE Systems cancelled the Avro RJX program. Druk had been a launch customer of the RJX-85, and its first example of the type had been almost completed when the program was terminated. Druk had to demolish a large number of houses along the approach paths to the runway to accomodate the A319s into Paro’s constricted airport. A second A319 is due to arrive in December. The airline has not announced specific plans for the two 146s. At one point, it was considering converting one into a freighter.
