MUMBAI: Singapore Changi Airport announced the launch of its 16th city link to India with the introduction of a new non-stop service between Guwahati and Singapore, operated by Drukair Royal Bhutan Airlines. This new route marks the first direct connection between Northeast India and Singapore.
From September 29, Drukair commenced twice-weekly flights from Guwahati to Singapore. The introduction of this new service is expected to reduce travel time from almost 10 hours, including transfers, to 4 hours 30mins. The new link is expected to strengthen not only cultural and socio-political ties between the countries but also facilitate opportunities to enhance travel and trade practices, a press release stated.
