The addition of Shillong as a destination is strategised to enhance domestic connectivity to the Northeastern parts of the country

To strengthen regional connectivity, IndiGo has initiated its direct flights between Shillong and Dibrugarh under the RCS scheme, effective from October 26, 2021. The new route was inaugurated with lamp lighting at the Shillong airport as well as in the Ministry of Civil Aviation in New Delhi. The inauguration ceremony was attended by the Union Minister for Civil Aviation, Jyotiraditya Scindia (virtually), Chief Minister of Meghalaya, Conrad Sangma (virtually-TBC), and other eminent dignitaries from Shillong at the airport. The addition of Shillong as a destination is a part of IndiGo’s strategy to enhance domestic connectivity to the Northeastern parts of the country, to fulfil demand from regional centres while enhancing accessibility. 

“We are pleased to commence direct connections between the capital of Meghalaya and industrial city of Assam under Regional Connectivity Scheme. These new domestic flights will strengthen regional connectivity and promote trade, commerce, as well as tourism through increased accessibility. The hill station of Northeastern India, Shillong, is known for its natural beauty and indigenous cultures. Direct connections between the tea city of India, Dibrugarh to the capital city of Meghalaya, will cater to the regional travel demand. The introduction of these new routes will further bolster the airline’s domestic network while augmenting inter and intraregional accessibility. We are committed to providing an affordable, on-time, safe and hassle-free travel experience, onboard our lean clean flying machine,” said Sanjay Kumar, Chief Strategy and Revenue Officer, IndiGo.
