IMPHAL, November 25: After its first spell of international flight landings in the Imphal Airport during the 2013 edition of the Manipur Sangai Festival, Golden Myanmar Airlines had touch down at the Imphal Airport again for its second spell on November 21.
The first flight of the second spell of the international flight had brought 64 Myanmar nationals and took 38 passengers on its return flight the same day.
The second flight of the second spell landed at the Imphal airport today with 40 passengers including Indian Ambassador to Myanmar Gautam Mukhopadhyay while taking back 33 passengers including India`™s chief of mission YK Sailas Thangal.
According to the M/s KB Enterprises which play the key role in materializing the flights, Chief Ministers of Sagaing and Kachin regions of the neighbouring country will board the last flight of the 2nd spell from Mandalay to Imphal on November 30, 2014.
It may be worth mentioning that Govt. of India has already granted International Airport status to Tulihal Airport, Imphal just before the Golden Myanmar`™s 1st spell last year. The expansion work of the Imphal Airport is taking up in full swing to overcome the technical challenges. The new global air route is a part of the bilateral air service agreement signed by India and Myanmar in 2012.
