Aizawl, February 11, 2019
The crisis-hit Jet Airways on February 10th, 2019 cancelled more than 10 flights due to operational reasons. After the withdrawal of flights to Guwahati and Delhi from Aizwal, Mizoram now has direct air link with Kolkata only.
The last Aizawl-Guwahati flight took off from the Lengpui Airport here on February 9th, 2019. It may be mentioned that only Air India is now running a flight service from Lengpui Airport here to Kolkata. In wake of financial crisis, the Jet Airways is looking to restructure debt and raise fresh funds.
“Following the withdrawal of the flights to Guwahati and Delhi, the travellers from Mizoram would face a tough time,” said Wing Commander Joe Lalhmingliana, Mizoram government’s principal consultant for Civil Aviation.
He further informed that the Mizoram government is in talks with other airlines for starting flight service from Aizawl to Delhi and Guwahati.
