“We would like to have concentration of services in Guwahati. We are envisaging connecting the rest of the country with Guwahati and bringing the world to the city. Occupancy rates are high in the northeast region. The growth here will also be three to four times the growth rate in the rest of the country, which we have pegged at eight to ten per cent over the next five years. Growth in air connectivity in the region will lead to development of trade and commerce as well,” says Vinay Dube, CEO at Jet Airways.
