Guwahati-Mandalay flight uncertain, Buddha Air conducts route survey

The leading airlines have not come forward so far to operate flights from Guwahati to Mandalay (Myanmar) even as Nepal’s premier airline ‘Buddha Air’ recently conducted a route survey for the possible introduction of the international flight between Guwahati and Kathmandu.

“The Union Aviation ministry has already conducted a bidding process for the new international flights Ude Desh ka Aam Naagrik (UDAN)-IV Scheme. But the leading airlines have not participated in the bidding forcing the Aviation ministry to give a fresh look into the entire issue,” a source told The Sentinel on Sunday.

Sources said the suspension of flights from Guwahati to Dhaka and Bangkok in the midway of their operation has proved to be a setback from business and psychological points of view for the airlines to operate flights in the new routes.

After a suspension of the Guwahati-Dhaka flight service by SpiceJet in September 2019, Nok Air — the Thailand-based low-cost airline — suspended its operations from Guwahati to Bangkok from January 20 this year.
