Here is a video of Bʜᴜᴛᴀɴ’s first female pilot and captain from Drukair, Royal Bʜᴜᴛᴀɴ Airlines, flying the Paro approach. Before making a U-turn to land on runway 15, the movie takes you above Paro Airport. When the crew arrives, it starts to rain, which makes landing even more difficult. The Captain made a lovely landing in the end.
About Paro airport:
The Paro airport is regarded as one of the hardest airports in the world to land commercial jetliners. The runway heights for runways 15 and 33 are 7362 feet and 7310 feet, respectively, while the airport is situated at an altitude of 7364 feet above mean sea level. The runway measures 7431 feet (2265 meters) in length and 30 meters in width, which just meets the ICAO minimum runway width requirement. (This is one of the reasons why pilots find Paro’s runway to be among the hardest to land on.)
Because they are the most frequently used runways by Airbus aircraft, 45 m wide runways serve as the foundation for all Airbus aircraft development. Runways that are 45 meters wide are used for all flying and simulator certification exams involving directional control on the ground.
