operating its Bombardier Q400 aircrafts on the said route.
On the occasion, the chief minister said
“We thank SpiceJet and especially Mr Ajay Singh for accepting our request and
inducting Dibrugarh onto SpiceJet’s network with such priority. This means a
fresh impetus to trade, tourism and connectivity between northeastern states
and adjoining regions. I truly applaud SpiceJet’s relentless efforts towards
taking flying to the masses and elevating North East on the country’s aviation
Meanwhile, Maharshi said, “The north
eastern region has a distinctive connectivity constraint on account of its
difficult terrain and hence SpiceJet has always remained committed to enhancing
connectivity to this region. We are extremely pleased to add Dibrugarh to our
network which also marks SpiceJet’s 50th destination on the
country’s domestic plot.”
