Scindia flags off IndiGo's Shillong-Dibrugarh flight under UDAN scheme
The return flight, which will operate three times a week, will have the duration of 75 minutes, it said. ''Due to the non-availability of any direct mode of transportation (till now), people were compelled to cover a long 12-hour journey by road and train to travel between Shillong and Dibrugarh,'' it mentioned.
Under the UDAN scheme, financial incentives from the Centre, state governments and airport operators are extended to selected airlines to encourage operations from unserved and underserved airports, and keep airfares affordable.
