Mumbai based Sovika Aviation Services is working on a dedicated cargo and air freight service for the North Eastern region. The dedicated cargo airline is expected to be fully functional by February 2015.
The company plans to use an ATR-72 aircraft, which can carry eight tonnes of cargo, and fly to all major airports of the region such as Guwahati, Agartala, Imphal, Aizawl and Dimapur.
A lot of the online shoppers from the region will definitely be grinning with this news. And well that also means, lesser economic blockade woes in Manipur. Overall great initiative to connect the landlocked states of the region with the rest of the country.
