Shillong Airport needs a complete facelift, says Cong MLA Ampareen Lyngdoh

Shillong: Shillong Airport needs a complete facelift, said Meghalaya legislator representing East Shillong constituency M Ampareen Lyngdoh on Friday.

Moving a Zero Hour notice on the floor of the House during the ongoing budget session of the Meghalaya Legislative Assembly, Lyngdoh said they should equip the airport with essential components besides ensuring regular operation of flights.

Lyngdoh stated that the Shillong to Delhi flight, commissioned in December last year, was to operate regularly, but contrary to the arrangement is not the case.

She also raised questions on the ambiguity on flight rates, the total number of flights from Shillong to Delhi, online bookings, including the absence of several essential booths inside and outside the terminal.

“A wine store was opened inside the airport on January 29. Similarly, we should also have pharmacies inside the airport,” Lyngdoh suggested.

The Congress MLA also stated that the airport lacks restroom facilities, food counters, prepaid counters, a dedicated tourism counter, emergency counter, proper parking facilities, including call-in and toll-free services.

“If we want to make the airport the pride of Meghalaya, these important components need to implemented,” she added.
