BY TC News Desk

Agartala: July 13. Transport Minister Sushanta Chowdhury today said that the introduction of international flight services between Agartala and Chittagong in Bangladesh is in its final stages.

In response to a query by CPI(M) MLA Jitendra Chaudhury, Transport Minister Sushanta Chowdhury stated that the international flight service from Agartala’s Maharaja Bir Bikram Airport to Chittagong could commence at any time. Chowdhury mentioned that the service was initially scheduled to launch in June.

He said that under the UDAN scheme, the contract for launching the Agartala-Chittagong flight services has been awarded to low-cost carrier SpiceJet.

Additionally, efforts have been initiated by the BJP government to resume air service from the now defunct Kailashahar Airport in Unakoti district for the benefit of the public.

The Transport Minister explained that in order to resume flight services from an existing airport, an additional 75 acres of land is required. The Unakoti District Magistrate (DM) has been tasked with preparing a project report for the Kailashahar airport.
