Heli-tourism: The next big thing?

Thiruvananthapuram: More and more tourists to God's Own Country can opt to keep off from the potholes and the irritating traffic soon, thanks to the Department of Tourism's decision to allow more private players to operate helicopter service between destinations.
State tourism director B Suman told Business Standard that a private company ? King Rotors ? has been given the nod to operate chopper services between tourist destinations.
"King Rotors will start its heli-tourism services from June 15. Initially, one chopper will operate between Kovalam and Kumarakom. Depending on the response, more aircraft could be used between more destinations," Suman added.
It may be recalled that Deccan Aviation had recently unveiled its heli-tourism venture in the state.
