Air Transport is considered as an important means of transport in the North-Eastern part of our country because:
- Big Rivers: Presence of big rivers like Brahmaputra make it difficult to construct roads and railways. Airways are suitable when rivers get flooded.
- Uneven surface: It is not suitable for the construction of roadways and railways which can be a costly affair. Can be easily travelled by airways.
- Dense Forests: Dense forests hamper the construction of roadways and railways.
- International Frontiers: International borders of Bangladesh, Myanmar, China, etc. can be easily travelled by airways without much hassles.
