Solution

Air travel is preferred in the Northeastern states because of the following reasons:

The Northeastern states have the presence of geographical features like the Himalayan mountains, rivers and dense forests, which makes land transport difficult. Therefore, air transport is the best mode of transport in these states.

Due to the presence of the Himalayas, the region is mostly covered in snow, therefore land transport becomes difficult.

These states often suffer from political tensions. Such tensions can hamper land transport. Therefore, air transport is preferred.
