Guwahati: In a recent development, IndiGO airlines will launch direct flight from Dibrugarh to and from the southern destination of Bengaluru four days a week from March 1.
Reportedly, Indigo airlines flight 6E 6126 will take off from Bengaluru at 8:15 am on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays to land Dibrugarh at 11:15 am.
The return flight 6E 6128 will take off from Dibrugarh on the same respective days at 11:45 am and arrive Bengaluru at 15:25 pm.
The construction of a new road around the acquired land for runway expansion project is currently underway and that required portion of the road for completing the project is going to be made available to AAI authorities at Dibrugarh very soon.
The airport is also going to be connected to the newly opened Dibrugarh-Tinsukia bypass road via a 1.3 km straight road.
This road will increase the accessibility to the airport and reduce the time of travel to the airport by the passengers.
In order to cope with the growing volume of aircraft and passenger movements at Dibrugarh airport, a third aerobridge is also being added to the airport terminal.
