Notably, Lokpriya Gopinath Bordoloi International Airport (LGBIA) handled 4.6 lakh passengers in the month of September, which is 22% higher than the previous year in September 2022 when it handled 3.58 lakh passengers.

Also, the airport handled almost 4,000 air traffic movement in September which is 19% higher than previous year’s September figures.

“It has repeatedly established the fact that LGBI Airport has a huge potential for growth. It is the most convenient and reliable mode of transportation from this region. The growth also indicates the emerging market in the Northeast region,” said Utpal Baruah, chief airport officer.
