    Tripura: Air ticket crisis hits patients hard, authority remains mum
    NBS | Tuesday, October 30th, 2018 | Published: 3:30 pm

    Prasenjit Das , Editor in Chief , India –

    Air passengers of Tripura are facing serious problem owing to meteoric rise in prices of air tickets – especially, patients are the worst affected. The situation is turning critical with every passing day. Tickets for Agartala-Kolkata and Agartala-Guwahati air route for next couple of days are either not available or prices are unbelievably high, even if few are available.

    At 1AM night on October 29, prices of Agartala-Kolkata air tickets were around Rs 8000 and only one ticket was available at that point of time. Normally air tickets moved between Rs 2300 to Rs 2800.Resentment among the people is palpable and roles of concerned authorities at State and Centre are coming under scanner. It is high time that Government comes up with a plausible solution to meteoric price rise of air tickets. People of Tripura – despite improvement in Railways – are heavily depended on airways.Usually for a stretcher-bound patient, six tickets are needed – that included the attendants and a doctor. But the sky rocketing air fare and also crisis of the tickets it has become impossible for the patients to go outside state for treatment. Some tourists were also reported to have got stuck here for the last few days.
