Drukair re­sumed its do­mes­tic flights on Tues­day fol­low­ing main­te­nance and a test flight the day be­fore. The flights to all three do­mes­tic air­ports re­mained tem­po­rar­ily sus­pended for 11 days after the In­ter Tur­bine Tem­per­a­ture or ITT was found to be high in one of the en­gines of its ATR air­craft. It was then taken to Sin­ga­pore for main­te­nance.

It was found out that some of the parts have aged and that one of the im­pellers was not work­ing out of the 32 im­pellers. These parts were re­placed and a prov­ing flight done from Paro to Bumthang and back to ob­serve the en­gine.
