With INS Kohassa, India set to get fourth air base in the Andamans


To enhance the operational capability of Andaman and Nicobar Command, Naval Air Station (NAS) Shibpur will be on Wednesday commissioned as INS Kohassa, a Defence release said.

This will be India’s fourth air base and the third naval air facility in the region that overlooks key sea lanes of communication and strategic points. These islands dominate the Bay of Bengal and the Six Degree and Ten Degree channels with more than 60,000 commercial vessels passing through each year.

With the addition of this airfield, the Andaman and Nicobar Command’s ability to operate independently from all the areas of the Union Territory will get a great boost, the release said.

Chief of Naval Staff Admiral Sunil Lanba will commission NAS Shibpur, which was established in 2010, as INS Kohasa. Read More
