By Our Correspondent

Agartala, June 28 ,2019 : Worried by the abnormal prices in air tickets, Member of Parliament Pratima Bhowmik has requested the Centre to increase flights to the land-locked state- Tripura immediately.

During 'Zero Hours', MP Ms Bhowmik has taken up the issue in the Parliament on Thursday and highlighted the people's suffering due to poor air service to the state. 

In presence of Union Minister Civil Aviation Minister Hardeep Singh Puri, she said people of the state have been suffering due to poor frequency of flights to the state. And, she urged the Union Minister to introduce two flights in Agartala-Delhi and Agartala-Kolkata routes keeping in mind of the growing demand for air tickets.
Later, the newly elected MP met the Civil Aviation Minister and handed over a memorandum seeking introduction of new flights in two Agartala bound routes to cease the flayers.

Currently, Air India operate only a pair of flights (Air Bus) in Agartala- Kolkata sector while Indigo, a private aviation company has been operating seven flights in Agartala-Kolkata and Agartala-Delhi routes.

Taking the advantage of thin presence of Air India, Indigo has been dominating the air service to the over the last two years. And, pulling out of SpiceJet from Agartala has given extra benefit to Indigo, according to passengers. Now, it is to be seen how the things unfold in the days to come.
