State's first ever airport to operate from August

01 Aug 2022

The long wait for Arunachal Pradesh to have its own airport will come to an end on August 15 when Hollongi Airport, the state's first airport, is slated to begin operations. The state capital, Itanagar, is only 15 km away from the greenfield Hollongi Airport. The Lilabari Airport in Assam's North Lakhimpur district is currently the closest airport to the state. The closest international airport to Itanagar is Lokpriya Gopinath Bordoloi International Airport in Guwahati, Assam. 200 passengers can be accommodated at peak times.
