AI refuses to take off in Jorhat, Tezpur

In yet another setback for the state’s aviation sector, the Indian Airlines will pull out of Tezpur and Jorhat within a few days.

According to sources, a team of the country’s premier domestic career has decided to stop its operation in Lakhimpur after the receipt of the assessment report prepared by a special team. The assessment of the Jorhat and Tezpur operations are underway to pave the way for the closure in Jorhat and Tezpur.

If it takes place, it will further result in the infrastructure bottleneck in the state where yawning communication gap has been a matter of concern.
