The international flights departing from Guwahati's Lokapriya Gopinath Bordoloi International Airport (LGBIA) resumed operations on Saturday after a two-year hiatus brought on by the Covid-19 pandemic.

At 9.10 a.m. on Saturday, a Druk Air flight from Guwahati to Singapore took off towards its destination. On Sundays, the same aircraft will fly from Guwahati to Paro in Bhutan, according to LGBIA authorities.

The only international airline currently offering service to Guwahati, the entry point to northeast India, is Bhutan's national airline Druk Air.

"Druk Air used to run flights from Paro to Singapore and return with a layover in Guwahati on both directions before the epidemic. However, due to Covid limits, the flights were terminated in 2020, according to an LGBIA spokesperson. However, Druk Air has begun operations and will make it possible for residents of Guwahati and other northeastern cities to easily fly to Singapore and Paro now that Bhutan has reopened its borders to foreign tourists.
