Arunachal Pradesh’s Hollongi Airport is almost ready for commercial flights with leading airline IndiGo planning to launch multiple flights soon, Mint reported Wednesday.
“On 18 October, IndiGo conducted a successful test landing at Hollongi Airport, also called Donyi Polo Airport. The foundation stone for the greenfield airport was laid in 2019. It will serve Itanagar, capital of Arunachal Pradesh, and is situated around 14 km south of the city centre. The airport has been built to handle narrow-body aircraft which can carry 180-200 passengers,” the report mentioned.
“The critical works required for operating the airport are complete. Prime Minister Narendra Modi is expected to inaugurate the airport but a date has not been fixed yet. We expect a boost for the tourism sector with the commencement of flights from this airport,” an official told Mint, as per the report.
“Flights to Guwahati & Kolkata with Delhi a Possibility”
IndiGo is likely to connect Itanagar with Guwahati and Kolkata, and there is also a possibility of a direct flight between Delhi and Itanagar in the months to come, another official told Mint in the report.
“Regional airline FlyBig is also likely to commence flights between Itanagar and Guwahati once the airport becomes operational”, he added.
