Guwahati: Come September 3 and Lokpriya Gopinath Bordoloi International (LGBI) Airport here will resume international passenger flight services. The resumption would be the first time since the Covid19 pandemic broke out.

Officials said that Bhutan’s national airline, Druk Air, will resume connect Guwahati, Paro and Singapore. Druk Air is the only international carrier that operates flights to Guwahati.

Besides, Assam is in line to get connectivity with five more international destinations under Centre’s Udaan international scheme.

Assam government has been requesting the Centre to grant at least five more international flight routes, including neighbouring countries like Myanmar, Nepal and Bangladesh.

Besides LGBI Airport, Manipur’s Imphal Airport was the only other international airport in the entire northeastern region. Air connectivity with neighbouring countries has been crucial for growth of tourism industry in the region.
