Arunachal Pradesh state government plans commercial operations at six reactivated ALGs

19 April 2017

The state government of Arunachal Pradesh in northeast India is actively encouraging commercial flights for regional connectivity from six upgraded Indian Air Force (IAF) Advanced Landing Grounds (ALGs).

The six ALGs are Ziro, Mechuka, Walong, Along, Pasighat, and Tuting.

Two other ALGs are not included in the regional connectivity plan. Tawang ALG, near a 17th-century Buddhist hilltop monastery, is undergoing an upgrade but the area is claimed by China as part of south Tibet. An upgrade at Vijaynagar ALG has been delayed due to lack of road connectivity.

The state government is fast-tracking "all requisite formalities so that civil operations can be started immediately from the ALGs", chief minister Pema Khandu said in December 2016 when launching the reactivated Tuting ALG near the Chinese border.
