Tripura: Centre mulls flight service from Agartala to Kailashahar

To connect two interior districts of Tripura, the centre has initiated steps to introduce flight service from Agartala to Kailashahar in Unakoti district.

The Airports Authority of India (AAI) has already built a new terminal building at Kailashahar Airport.

The state has received a letter from the Union Ministry of Civil Aviation about its plan of introducing flight service from Agartala to Kailashahar Airport under the Udan scheme.
The AAI built a new terminal building at Kailshahar airport but the runway, which was severely damaged by the flood in 2018, is not suitable for operating flight service.

“Since the matter came to our knowledge, we will take it up with the AAI authority for taking up repair work on the damaged runway at Kailashahar for introducing 12 seater flight service,” said an official of AAI.
