flybig has been on a rapid expansion mode ever since its flight operations began in January 2021. On May 2, 2022 Shillong became the 8th destination for flybig in the North East of India after four cities in Assam, two cities in Arunachal Pradesh and one city in Tripura.

flybig newest route, opens up several vistas of opportunities for people across demographic and socio-economic segments including potential for students who study in Delhi NCR and neighbouring regions or working professionals especially (Government personnel) who are stationed in Delhi but whose home state is Meghalaya or any neighbouring state or area. Similarly, quicker air travel times of air vs Rail and Road travel (which was earlier the preferred mode of transport to travel between Delhi and Shillong) coupled with greater frequency of access provided by the Shillong-Delhi bi-weekly flight is likely to increase the potential for both movement of people and goods.

Further, with the introduction of this route it deepens the market access between metropolitan air hubs such as Delhi, Kolkata and the Northeast. In terms of time and resources saved, the flybig operation would end up saving more than 600,000 man-hours in comparison to rail travel and nearly 90,000 man-hours saved when compared to other air carriers.
