How to send

Unaccompanied baggage will be accepted only at the counters, and not at any other location. Once at the counter ensure your baggage is weighed and baggage tags (LR) are attached accordingly. You will have to sign the LR (limited release tag) and ensure to declare the contents of the baggage. All unaccompanied baggage forms should be filled properly, including the sender and receiver details.

We recommend that a picture of the baggage tag and unaccompanied baggage form be taken by the sender and shared with the receiver in Bhutan.

Drukair does not guarantee a specific time for collection of your unaccompanied baggage. While we have an excellent rate of correct delivery estimations, with most of the unaccompanied baggage arriving on time, we recommend allowing a little extra time in case of any unexpected disruptions. As with the collection, please note that items will need custom clearance before it can be collected by the recipient.

Television as Unaccompanied Baggage

Drukair will accept carriage of television up to 65 inches and within the permissible weight of up to maximum weight allowance of 50 kgs on limited release (if the customer indemnifies the airline against any claims for compensation for damage). For TVs above 65 inches please book separately and send through our cargo services.


  1. DG, like batteries and explosives/flammable content, is prohibited and will be rejected during security x-ray screening, without any liability to the carrier.
  2. While the airline will strive to handle fragile items carefully, the customer has to ensure that the packing has to be done properly. Moreover, fragile items will only be accepted by the airline if the customer indemnifies the airline against any claims for compensation for damaged fragile items (Limited Release mentioned at the back of the tag must be signed)
  3. Perishable items must be declared to the counter agent. The airline will not be responsible for any damage to perishables due to non-declaration.
  4. If the items are big in size, but less in weight, volumetric weight charges may be applied. However, if the actual weight is more than the volumetric weight, then the actual weight will be charged
  5. Unaccompanied baggage will be subject to offload depending on the availability of space in the aircraft cargo holds as passenger baggage and medical/other urgent cargo will need to be prioritized
