Tripura is poised to make its debut on the global civil aviation stage on September 17, as the inaugural direct flight from Agartala to Chittagong, Bangladesh, is scheduled for takeoff on that day.
It marks a momentous achievement for the state, which will fulfill a long-awaited aspiration. Then, the residents of Tripura can conveniently reach Chittagong, the second-largest city and a significant seaport in Bangladesh, just within under an hour.
The introduction of the flight service is an outcome of the ‘double engine’ government in Tripura, under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who has demonstrated unwavering dedication to the state’s progress and prosperity.
On the eve of Durga Puja, a joyous and festive occasion enthusiastically observed in Tripura, the Central Government has bestowed a significant gift upon the state’s residents.
A government official said that the flight service is anticipated to commence on September 17, which is pending for approval from the authorities of both nations.
