The much-awaited helicopter service between Guwahati and Haflong will start from Saturday (tomorrow)the 25th March 2012. The Rudra GTL Aviation Private Limited has come up with the helicopter services in the region. Hailing the decision of the Rudra GTL Aviation Private Limited to start the helicopter service in the backward district of NC Hills (Dima Hasao), CEM of the NC Hills (Dima Hasao) Autonomous Council Mr. Debojit Thaosen said that the launching of the chopper service would be a historic step for the district. “Though the road communications in NC Hills (Dima Hasao) have improved to an extent, people of the district still need extra hours to reach destinations like Guwahati and Silchar. This is really terrible,” Thaosen said, adding, “Patients in the district mostly suffer from bad road communications and non-availability of air connectivity.” Besides Haflong, Assam’s first passenger chopper service will connect the capital city with the Bodo Territorial Council (BTC) area, Dhemaji, Karbi Anglong, Lilabari, Tezpur, Manas and Majuli on a daily basis, saving scores of having to undertake torturous journeys across the State. Thaosen further stated that tourism and emergency health services would get a tremendous boost with the chopper service. “NC Hills (Dima Hasao) district with its picturesque and famous places like Haflong and Jatinga has tremendous potential for tourism as well. With the launching of the helicopter service, we can also tap the district’s tourism potential,” he said. The CEM urged the State Government to start helicopter ambulance service in the district for the benefits of the people settled in some inaccessible terrains in the district.
