Inauguration of Donyi Polo Airport in Arunachal Postponed to Oct

Guwahati: The inauguration of the newly built Donyi Polo Airport at Hollong in Arunachal Pradesh has been postponed until October due to the Directorate General of Civil Aviation’s (DGCA) failure to deliver the flight schedule.

This was informed by the state Civil Aviation Minister¬†Nakap Nalo. On August 15, the airport was supposed to be officially opened in celebration of India’s 75th Independence Day.

However, the complex project’s whole infrastructure has already been built.

“The runway, air traffic control (ATC) tower, (provisional) terminal building, and other significant civil structures are all finished. Last month, the Airports Authority of India (AAI) successfully conducted fly calibrations and test landings of aircraft, facilitating inspection by various regulatory bodies “said Nakap Nalo.

“It is understood that the DGCA will create the flying schedules in October. After being added to the flight schedule, the airport will be officially opened ” Nalo added.

The Hollongi Greenfield airport’s name has recently been changed to “Donyi Polo Airport” by the state cabinet.

Hollongi is about 15 km from Itanagar. The Hollongi airport, built by the AAI at an estimated cost of Rs 645 crore, can hold 200 people at once. There are eight check-in desks there.
