From Our Correspondent

Itagar, Feb 12: The much-hyped operation of commercial flight services from Pasighat in East Siang district is going to be a reality soon, as private airliners have evinced keen interest to start operation from this month with a separate termil for civilians at the Advanced Landing Ground (ALG) in this centurion town. Initially, the existing civil supply office building, adjacent to the ALG would be used as an interim civilian termil before the separate termil within the ALG is constructed, an official report informed here today.

Moyong informed that he was delighted to be a part of the development and added that the state government filly resolved all pending issues and moving ahead on the work for it. The present termil is expected to establish new bench-marks of functiol efficiency and operatiol safety for airports, he hoped. Moyong asserted that the construction of the upcoming high-class full-fledged civil termil project by Airport Authority of India would be a shining example of dymism of the present state’s Chief Minister Pema Khandu who is closely monitoring all developments and pursuing the union ministry. DC Tatak stressed on reasoble and latest design features maintaining quality and standard in addressing critical environmental concerns like those of energy and water efficiency and indoor air quality. While modifying the existing building, the engineers should ensure that it is eco-friendly and convenient to all categories of passengers, the DC added.
