Agartala finally gets direct flight to Delhi

Tripura Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb on Wednesday afternoon flagged off Agartala–Delhi direct flights, which are being operated by Indigo Airlines, reports Northeast Now news.

The CM along with two MPs from the state- Pratima Bhowmik and Rebati Tripura– and MLA Dilip Das and other dignitaries were present at the Maharaja Bir Bikram Airport during the flagging off ceremony.

MP Pratima Bhowmik raised the demand for direct flight service between Agartala and Delhi in her first session at Lok Sabha and on the eve of India’s 73rd Independence Day, the flight service became operational.

The direct flight is expected to help in reducing the ongoing flight crisis in Tripura.

The CM addressing a gathering at the airport informed that even though he has invited several investors to the state, but owing to the lack of direct flights from Delhi to Tripura, investors expressed their unwillingness to visit the state.
