Tripura: AAI Officials Meet Transport Minister Sushanta Chowdhury; Kailashahar Airport Set For Revival After 32 Years

Agartala: In a significant development, the Tripura government has embarked on a mission to breathe new life into the long-abandoned Kailashahar Airport in Unakoti district. After years of neglect, this strategic move aims to revitalize regional connectivity and boost the local economy.

The revival efforts kicked off on August 1 when State Transport Minister Sushanta Chowdhury visited the derelict Kailashahar Airport. During his visit, Minister Chowdhury engaged in extensive discussions with local Members of Legislative Assembly (MLAs) and high-ranking officials. The primary agenda of these talks was charting a path for the airport’s reactivation.

On September 4, a high-level delegation from the Airport Authority of India, a body operating under the Ministry of Civil Aviation of India, descended upon the Kailashahar Airport. The delegation comprised operational experts and a technical team, totaling eleven representatives, including three from Delhi, three from Guwahati, and five from Agartala.

Today, following a courtesy call with Transport Minister Sushanta Chowdhury, the delegation convened an essential meeting at the State Secretariat. The discussions encompassed various critical aspects related to air services, with a strong focus on the reopening of Kailashahar Airport.
