India’s newest and most recent airport, that just recently opened for business, is to be served on a daily basis by IndiGo.

Indigo A320 flying to Itanagar India

The Aircraft and Other Insights

The aircraft that will fly these routes will be one of the many A320 family types that the budget airline operates across its domestic and international network.

This flight will not only allow passengers from the Arunachal Pradesh to be effectively connected to the rest of the country, but also boost tourism to the region. Itanagar (Hollongi), also known as the land of dawn-lit mountains is home to many must see tourist attractions that before the opening of the Donyi Polo Airport were much harder to reach.

A New Route To Accomodate Growing Passenger Figures

After years of worldwide restrictions 2022 has been, so far, the year that has marked the return of passengers to flying. Surely India will be no exception in the coming months and will see great demand for travel and flights. This flight offers greater capacity for tourists and other travellers to expand their horizons.
