Dubai (and other Middle-Eastern destinations) are still not adequately linked to Assam & Eastern Indian airports. For improving the air-links between Assam (Guwahati) and the Middle-East, the concerned Authorities in India needs to be pursued. You may write directly to the Ministry of Civil Aviation at the following address, with a copy to us:

        Ministry of Civil Aviation, Rajiv Gandhi Airport, New Delhi - 110 003.
