Itanagar, May 23 (PTI) FlyBig airlines will on Monday

start a direct flight service between Pasighat in East Siang

district of Arunachal Pradesh, and Guwahati and Kolkata,

officials said.

The newly-launched airlines operated a trial flight

with an ATR 72 aircraft on Sunday and it landed safely at the

Pasighat airport, FlyBig regional head Manima Baruah said.

"A trial flight operated by @flybigairlines landed

safely at Pasighat Airport. The scheduled civilian operations

will commence 24th May onwards. Direct flights under #UDAN

will significantly boost the economic opportunities in the

region," the Union Civil Aviation Ministry tweeted.

Chief Minister Pema Khandu said it was a significant

milestone in building air connectivity in the state.

Barua said the fare would be cheaper than other

airlines operating in the region.

"The fare between Pasighat and Guwahati is Rs 1,100,

while that between Pasighat and Kolkata will be 2,300," she

added.

Alliance Air is operating flights three days a week --

Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday -- in the Pasighat-Guwahati-

Kolkata route since May 2018. PTI UPL
