Air connectivity in Northeastern region expands further

Agartala: With a private airliner - Flybig - starting its operations in the new routes connecting Guwahati and Dibrugarh on Friday, the air connectivity in the northeastern region further expanded under the Regional Connectivity Scheme-Ude Desh ka Aam Naagrik (RCS-UDAN), officials said. Airport Authority of India (AAI) officials said that a flight of the private airliner Flybig on Friday started the direct flight services from Agartala to Guwahati and Agartala to Dibrugarh.

A water cannon salute was accorded to the first flight at the Maharaja Bir Bikram Airport, 20 km north of the capital city Agartala. An AAI official said that the Flybig flight would operate three days a week (Monday, Wednesday and Friday) on these routes. "The new flight operations in the new routes started at a time when the second wave of Covid-19 has impacted the Aviation industry badly and it would be a morale booster for other Airlines to expand their operations. This will also improve connectivity between Agartala and other northeastern states," the official said.
