How to Reach Tripura

By Air:

Agartala Airport is situated at a distance of 6.7 nautical miles or 12.5 km towards the northwest of the capital. Housed at Singerbhil, it ranks as the 2nd busiest airport in the northeastern part of India following Guwahati. Cities like Imphal, Kolkata, Silchar, Delhi, Guwahati, Aizwal, Chennai, Bangalore, Mumbai and Ahmedabad are connected directly via flight services. The important airlines serving the state are Jet Airways (running Konnect and Codeshare flights), Air India, SpiceJet and Indigo Airlines. Agartala offers passenger helicopter services to key places like Dharmanagar and Kailashahar along with additionally secluded places including Gandacherra and Kanchanpur.

By Road:

There is just one key roadway, NH-44 or National Highway 44, which joins Tripura to the other parts of the country. Starting at Sabroom in the southern part of the state, it moves towards the north in the direction of Agartala, and then it bends to the east and subsequently north-east to get into the state of Assam. NH-44 is regionally named as “Assam Road”, and frequently dubbed as the lifeline of Tripura. Nonetheless, NH44 just has one track and is not in good shape. As a result of a great deal of rainfall, landslides, and other forms of disturbances on it, Tripura is severed from the bordering states. There is NH 44A, one more National Highway, which joins Aizawl, Mizoram with the tiny settlement of Manu in South Tripura district. The Tripura Road Transport Corporation (TRTC) is the public bureau which takes care of public transportation via roadways. Since Tripura is a mountainous and inland state, it largely relies on roadways for communication. The overall span of roadways is 10,520 miles (16,931 km) of which state highways comprise 428 miles (689 km), national highways 278 miles (448 km) and since 2009–10, inhabitants in countryside places regularly utilize watercourses as a means of transportation.

By Rail:

There was no railway transportation in Tripura till 2008-2009. At that time, a railway link was set up between the Lumding junction in Assam and capital Agartala. It is a meter gauge railway track joining with the normal Indian gauge. The key railheads in this itinerary are Dharmanagar, Agartala, and Kumarghat. Train services from Silchar (Assam) are also available. As of 2009–10, the overall span of rail tracks in Tripura is 95 miles or 153 km. Expansion of rail tracks from the capital to Sabroom, the southernmost settlement, is going on from 2012.
