Arunachal: FlyBig Airlines Ensures Essential Air Services in Arunachal Amid Challenges
FlyBig Airlines is addressing aviation challenges to maintain vital air services between Arunachal and Assam.
ITANAGAR: In a proactive move to sustain essential aerial services for residents of Arunachal Pradesh, FlyBig Airlines has announced the deployment of a 19-seater Twin Otter aircraft on disrupted routes connecting Tezu and Hollongi with Guwahati and Rupsi. The decision comes in the wake of the airline temporarily suspending its operations in Arunachal due to challenges in the aircraft power plant component supply chain and concerns raised by lessors in response to broader issues faced by India's major airlines.
Sanjay Mandavia, CEO at FlyBig, emphasized the necessity of this provisional action, stating, “We've had to pause our operations temporarily due to aircraft power plant component supply chain problems and concerns raised by our lessors in response to India's major airline challenges.” The move aims to bridge the gap until a new aircraft is acquired, with the goal of resuming regular services by the first week of January 2024.
Despite the challenges, FlyBig Airlines remains committed to its passengers and the people of Arunachal. Mandavia assured that efforts are underway to address the issues promptly and return to normal operations. The recent statement not only highlights the complexities of the current aviation landscape but also underscores FlyBig Airlines' unwavering commitment to navigating and resolving the air connectivity crisis in Arunachal Pradesh.
FlyBig Airlines is actively collaborating with relevant authorities, including the civil aviation directorate general, to navigate the operational challenges. The airline is working diligently to resolve issues with its lessors and is dedicated to finding sustainable solutions for continued operations in India. Affected passengers are encouraged to reach out to FlyBig Airlines' customer support for assistance with rescheduling, refunds, and any other inquiries.
This strategic move by FlyBig Airlines showcases a determined effort to ensure that crucial air connectivity is maintained in the region despite the temporary disruptions. As the airline actively addresses challenges and engages with authorities, the focus remains on finding lasting solutions to uphold its commitment to seamless air travel in Arunachal Pradesh.
