As of the present there is only one international flight per week (on Wednesdays) between Bangkok and Guwahati in northeast India. The flight can be used by those that book tours in Bhutan that originate from Paro, the capital of Bhutan, traverse the entire country to Eastern Bhutan, to Mongar and Trashigang on its only road, and rather than backtracking to Paro again, the tourists can continue to exit Bhutan via Samdrup Jongkhar in southeastern corner of Bhutan to Guwahati in Assam province of India. Guwahati offers also a convenient flight access to Kolkata and Delhi, as well as serves as a starting point for adding a cruise tour extension on the

The Indian government now considers introduction of new direct international flights from Guwahati to not only Thailand but also to Myanmar, Bangladesh, China and Malaysia. These connections would further improve the travel logistics in the India subcontinent, to and from China and southeast Asia.
Second significant addition to travel access to India has been recent introduction of new daily flights by Air India from Chicago via Frankfurt to New Delhi and onwards to Hyderbad or elsewhere in South Asia.
