“IndiGo will secure all regulatory approvals and specific flight schedules will be announced as these approvals are received,” it said.
Earlier, IndiGo had announced flight services between Kolkata and Shillong from February 1 with the Meghalaya government reopening the state for tourists after remaining locked for almost 10 months due to Coronavirus.
After the long suspension of their flight due to COVID19 lockdown, IndiGo is all set to resume its Kolkata flight from 1st February. Booking is already started.
IndiGo had initiated operations to and from Shillong – its 54 domestic destination – in July 2019 under the regional connectivity scheme.
