I am travelling to Shillong for the first time in mid-November, from Kolkata, and am really looking forward to it. I was planning to fly to Shillong airport / Umroi airport, but then I got some advice that this airport is not reliable, and I saw that on Shillong's wikitravel page ( http://wikitravel.org/en/Shillong ) it says
"However, flights to Umroi are only from Calcutta and generally are cancelled at the last minute due to inclement weather. Guwahati airport which is 4&1/2 to 5 hours from shillong is a preferable option."
Is this advice accurate; should I fly to Guwahati instead? It seems much further away from Shillong, and I will be tired from travelling at this point so do not wish to do any sightseeing on the way from the airport. But I don't want a cancelled flight either.
Many thanks for any advice!
