Imphal-Silchar air service should be relaunched again to cater to the acute transport needs of the people of Manipur and Assam particularly of the Barak Valley and adjoining areas in the way Imphal-Dimapur flight service was launched to serve the people of Manipur and Nagaland in particular by the Hon’ble Chief Minister on last 7th December, 2019 at Tikendrajit International Airport. The launching of RCS-Udan (Regional Connectivity Scheme) to be operated by Alliance Air is welcomed by all, particularly by the people of the two states as it was suspended for a long (about 5-6 years ago ) and aims in achieving the objective of “letting the common People/citizen of the country fly” at affordable fare in this region of N.E.
Reintroduction of Imphal-Silchar air service is highly needed considering the large number people, including students, go for studies in silchar, Bangladesh, Shillong, Tripura, Guwahati and other places, and the poor road conditions of Imphal-Jiribam/Silchar since a long time, among others. Once the flight service is reintroduced the people to people contact between Assam and Manipur, more particularly of the people in Barak Valley, Jiribam and Agartala will be increased inpersonal communication and relations among the people of this region.
In the light of the above circumstances, Hon’ble Chief Minister of Manipur Shri N. Biren is requested to arrange for relaunching of the air service between Imphal-Silchar at an early date.
