The first direct flight between Imphal, Manipur and Shillong, Meghalaya has been flagged off under the RCS-UDAN scheme. The Ministry of Civil Aviation said in a statement that the route will strengthen aerial connectivity in priority areas of North-East. Earlier, travellers had to cover a long 12-hour journey by road to reach Shillong from Imphal due to the non-availability of any direct mode of transportation.
