Maharaja Bir Bikram Airport to be linked to Bangladesh, Bangkok cities

Agartala's Maharaja Bir Bikram Airport will soon be directly connected to Dhaka and Chittagon in Bangladesh, as well as Bangkok via a Guwahati flight.

The long wait for travellers is over, as the Maharaja Bir Bikram Airport in Agartala's New Integrated Terminal Building (NITB) opened for passengers on Saturday, with the first flight arriving. The first flight received a salute from a water cannon.

The public began using the large, gorgeous, state-of-the-art airport on January 15, 2022. The Prime Minister of India, Shri Narendra Modi, inaugurated the NITB. During the opening ceremony for the new airport terminal building, Prime Minister Narendra Modi stated that Tripura has the potential to become northeast India's gateway, ushering in all-around development for the region and that this airport will assist in this endeavour.

Pratima Bhoumik, Minister of State, was present during the opening of the new airport terminal.

The Honorable Minister expressed his delight at the commissioning of NITB for the people of Tripura and said that international flights to Dhaka and Bangkok will begin shortly from here. Bhoumik was one of the first travellers to leave the airport this morning. On the occasion, the performers also performed a local folk dance called Hojaigiri. With packed goodies, the Minister and the Airport Director greeted the first incoming passengers.

During peak hours, this airport will be able to handle about 1,500 passengers, which is three times its previous capacity. In the next days, this will allow around 5,000 travellers to pass through. The number of check-in counters has been raised to 20, and the In-Line Baggage Screening (ILBS) technology will allow a hassle-free luggage drop.

Four aero bridges are available at the airport enabling seamless embankment and disassembly. It also features six parking spaces, which is more than twice as many as the previous one. Once needed clearance is received, the much-anticipated international tag to the airport will become a reality. After Guwahati and Imphal, it will be the third international airport in North East India.
