1. The north eastern states are full of big river, dissected relief, dense forests, frequent floods.
2. It has international frontiers with Myanmar, Bangladesh and China. Underthese conditions, air transport is preferred in these hilly areas of north-easternstates because air transport can cover very difficult areas like high mountains anddense forests
3. It is also useful in hostile areas and natural and human made calamitieslike floods.
4. It is only in the north eastern states that special provision are made toextend the air services to the common people.As such air travel is within their reach and preferred.

AIR TRANSPORT IS PREFERRED MORE IN NORTH EASTERN STATES OF INDIA 1) Air travel is the fastest as well as costliest mode of transport. 2) Due to extreme geographic features like high mountains, big rivers, dissected relief, dense forests and frequent floods air travel is the most ideal mode of transport in North Eastern states. 3) Due to international conflicts, the frontier regions would be better served with air travel than railways. 4) The weather in the North East is usually cold and snowy where air travel is a better choice over railways. 5) Hence, North Eastern regions are provided with subsidised air travel services.
