Coochbehar, the city of Coochbehar palace is a big town and it would be better if it is called a town in stead of city. There has been a airport lying unused for long time.


Once daily flight services resumed at this airport between Coochbehar and Kolkata. But that had to be stopped due to extremely poor facilities and inconveniences. A chance of accident loomed large and the authorities stopped the service. I heard many years ago flights were operational between Coochbehar-Kolkata, Coochbehar-Guwahati and Coochbehar-Baghdogra. A person told me that during nineties a flight crashed due to some technical snag but didn't result in any casualty.It was the talk of the town that time.


The city of Coochbehar is very green and studded with innumerable trees. One can take a guess where the location of the unused, desolate airport is by standing on the roof of a three stories building.


If the operations at this airport resumes, people will be able to afford to the journey as it takes long time to travel to Kolkata either by train and of course bus and the bus journey will be horrendous, it goes without saying.
