Transportation

AIR Connectivity

Imphal Airport is the second largest airport in the NE-Region with postal air cargo services six days a week. Imphal is well connected with daily flights to Guwahati, Kolkata, Bangalore and Delhi and other destinations in and outside NE Region. Indian Airlines, Indigo, Kingfisher & Jetlite offers frequent flights ranging from 4 to 6 days a week. To further improve the air connectivity night landing facility is ready and airfield is being expanded to increase parking space for eight aircraft at a time. New State of the art terminal Building with cold storage facilities is in pipeline which will facilitate marketing of our produces and products.

ROAD Connectivity

Three National Highways, viz., N.H-39, N.H- 53 and N.H-150 criss-cross the State connecting all districts. The Saurashtra-Silchar Super Highway project is being extended to Moreh. With the proposed Moreh to Mae Sot (Thailand) highway coming up, Manipur will become India’s Gateway to South-East Asia.

RAILWAY Connectivity

Manipur is on the threshold of India’s rail map. NH-39 links Imphal with railhead at Dimapur in Nagaland, 215 km. to the north. NH-53 links Imphal with railhead at Jiribam, 225 km. in the South-West.With the coming of Jiribam to Tupul railway line which is in progress, Imphal will be much more closer to the rest of India.
