Spice jet provides low fare and good service compared to others. Quality of food inside the airline is better than others low fare airline. Transport of Assam and Meghalaya Tourism are available in the Guwahati Airport. Also local transport is available at outside of Guwahati Airport. Best season to visit the Shillong is after monsoon if you see the water in water falls.

The timing for the flight was the most convenient for us and also the cost. Although the flight attendant issuing boarding pass knew we were travelling together gave us two seats on two different sides. We came pretty early so it cannot be that all other seats were taken.
The in-flight service was good. More »

If you have better options please avail. Air India services is very ordinary. They just don\'t care for the passengers. Food served could not be eaten. All airlines offer concessional services in this sector however I guess the Air India is worst. I suggest you to book your tickets at least a week in advance to get best bargain. Two day before the actual date of travel you will find the rates are high. More »

We thought that it would be very exciting but the gradients and curves were not that difficult to negotiate. But you have to tackle drunk drivers. One halt for tea and you reach to Shillong within 3 hrs at best. Vehicles can be hired from Guwahati- Paltan bazar; any where between Rs.1100/- to 1300/- for a Sumo Gold( non-ac) and 1500/- to 180/- for Innova (ac). But if you take vehicle from Hotel then they will charge you not less than rs2000/- and for Innova more than 2500/- to 3000/-. More »

Go Air is the direct flight from Kolkata to Guwahati and in it had a good flying experience. Travelling for the first time through Go AiI was a bit unsure about the quality and flight assistance. I would get but now I can surely book tickets on the airline for the next time I have to fly anywhere. Cabin Crew was helpful and seats were comfortable too. Journey was around an hour and a comfortable flying experience. More »
