Flight to Dhaka from today

By STAFF REPORTER

GUWAHATI, June 30 - The maiden flight on the Guwahati-Dhaka route will commence on July 1. The daily flight service will be operated by private airline SpiceJet.

Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal will attend the ceremony along with other senior ministers, including Chandra Mohan Patowary, Siddhartha Bhattacharya and Bhabesh Kalita, when the first flight takes off at 11:55 am tomorrow.

This will be the fourth international destination to be directly connected from Guwahati. Currently, Drukair (Royal Bhutan Airlines) operates flights to Paro, Bangkok and Singapore � both two days in a week, an AAI official told The Assam Tribune.

Inspired by the vision of making the Northeast an integral part of the Act East Policy, the Chief Minister had requested the Centre to consider connecting Guwahati to capitals of ASEAN and BBN countries through a scheme similar to the UDAN with VGF (viability gap funding) as may be required.

A proposed Guwahati-Bangkok flight is likely to be launched in August. Kathmandu, Yangon, Hanoi and Kuala Lumpur will also be connected thereafter. The Assam government has committed Rs 100 crore per year for three years under VGF.
