Emergency Flight Service by Assam Tourism Development Corporation (ATDC) between Silchar and Guwahati

The communication between Barak valley with rest of the state and country has got affected due to recent flood and massive landslide caused by heavy rainfall in the last few days. The railway route connecting Lumding with Badarpur in barak Valley is completely disrupted as heavy rainfall in Dima Hasao has uprooted tracks and bridges causing massive damage to railway infrastructure.

Due to the increase in demand, the fare of air tickets of commercial airlines have substantially increased and it is becoming a hardship for general public to bear such increased air fare cost. Considering the great hardship being faced by the general public due to sudden spike of air fare, Government of Assam has decided to operate emergency flight service between Silchar and Guwahati at subsidised rate of Rs. 3,000 through Assam Tourism Development Corporation (ATDC). As approved by the Cabinet, ATDC will sign a MoU in this regard with Fly Big, which is already providing regional connectivityin Assam and Northeast States.
