Mizoram CM Zoramthanga Writes to Civil Aviation Minister against Unfair Air Fares, Lack of Connectivity
By News18 27-Jun-2019
As of June 26, 2019, the airfare between Aizawl and Kolkata for July 9, 2019, which is 241 nautical miles (446 km), is Rs 10,145, while the fare from Delhi to Kolkata, which is 708-nm (1311 km) is Rs 5,149.
While the fare for a 90-nm (166 km) Aizawl-Imphal journey cost Rs 7,895, tickets priced at Rs 3,049 was available for a 459-nm (850 km) Delhi-Nagpur journey on the same date.
“There is a problem faced by the people of my state when it comes to commuting to any part of the mainland. As you must be well aware of, Mizoram, is situated in the extreme northeastern corner of India between Myanmar and Bangladesh, its inaccessibility needs no elaboration,” said the chief minister.
Due to the cancellation of Jet Airways flights to Guwahati and Delhi from Aizawl since February 9 this year, Mizoram only has direct air link with Kolkata. Zoramthanga said the air fares were unrealistically high as they are not governed by sector, length or flying time.
