Airlines and destinations[edit]

This airstrip was created way back in 1962 during Indo sino conflict and has been of less use since then. This airport comes under AAI (Airport Authority of India). A helicopter service of Pawan Hans on behalf of the Arunachal Pradesh government operates between Pasighat and various regional stations.

Somewhere between 16 to 20 Aug 16 three IAF Su-30 MkI air superiority fighters landed at this base after runway revamp. plans are on for this runway to be extended and modernise so that transport aircrafts can also land here which in a way will deter chinese aggressive claim over Arunanchal Pradesh as reported in Times of India 20 Aug 16 edition.[1]
