The latest development in the travel sector is the introduction of a direct flight from Northeast India to Singapore. The Drukair Royal Bhutan Airlines has taken the initiative by launching direct fights that’ll fly twice in a week from Guwahati.

Guwahati is now the 16th city in India to have a direct link with Singapore. This indeed is a start of bigger and better things in terms of connectivity, travel and trade. This has especially come as a great news to those who have to endure 10 hours of travel time flying from the Northeast to this South East Asian country. Travellers can now reach Singapore Changi Airport from Guwahati in 4 hours 30 minutes straight, including transfers.

This airline probably followed in the footsteps of IndiGo Airlines that recently launched its daily sevices from Kolkata and Tiruchirapalli to Singapore and from October 29 onwards, will additionally launch 4-time weekly flights from Bangalore to Singapore.

Guwahati, the northeastern city in Assam, is the gateway to all the breathtaking destinations in that part of India. Those who’re travelling to Assam can take a day or two out to explore the wide range of attractions from culture to nature like: Kamakhya Temple, Manas National Park, Pobitora Wildlife Sanctuary, Kaziranga National Park, Majuli river island. A special mention has to be made of the sweeping, colonial-era tea gardens in the state that is home to the globally known Assam tea, that you must visit for an experience of a lifetime.

There’s hope for a strengthened relationship ties both culturally and socio-politically between India and the Singapore, the most expensive country in the world – apart from facilitated opportunities for enhanced travel and trade practices.
