flybig has taken its aim to build a strong air network in Arunachal Pradesh a level higher with beginning its flight to a new route in the state this week. Continuing with the commitment to connectivity in the region, the scheduled commuter airline is geared to commence first-ever services on Tezu –Guwahati route from August 16, 2021 under the Government of India’s Regional Connectivity Scheme (UDAN-RCS).
Air connectivity in Arunachal Pradesh has streamlined travel in the region. Tezu is heaven for natural beauty admirers with picturesque valleys, lakes and wildlife waiting to be explored. This new flight path will prove to be a milestone in generating more tourism that will advance the overall economic welfare of the city.
Announcing the launch of the new route, Gaurav Rathore, Chief Commercial Officer, flybig said, “It gives me immense pride to announce that we have successfully established air connectivity in Tezu providing people of this city the freedom to travel via air. This challenging phase of the pandemic has reiterated the importance of air connectivity and we are committed to bringing air connectivity to the underserved areas in the country. Tezu is a beautiful destination for travellers and pilgrims alike. A flight between Tezu and Guwahati is a remarkable landmark that will make travel convenient for passengers.
“Arunachal Pradesh now has a strong air network with earlier Pasighat and now Tezu activating air service. We are grateful to the Chief Minister of Arunachal Pradesh, Shri Pema Khandu for his support and guidance in carrying out the operation successfully.”
Tezu – Guwahati flights will operate with a frequency of four flights per week. The launch fares start from INR 1199 making it possible for a larger number of people to travel by flight.
Commemorating India’s 75th Independence Day, flybig is offering a special fare of INR 75 to army officers, their immediate family members and senior citizens, honouring their exemplary service to the nation. The offer is valid on Tezu – Guwahati and Guwahati – Pasighat flights for travel this August.
