Climb aboard that chopper for a bird's eye tour of Mumbai

Come Sunday, Mumbaikars as well as tourists will be able to get an aerial view of the cityscape. The state tourism department, with help from a private operator, has kick-started helicopter services for those keen seeing a bird's eye view of the city.

Pune-based charter aviation company Girisons Airways will operate the service from Juhu airport every Sunday. The 15-minute ride will cost Rs3,939 (excluding taxes).

Launching the service on the occasion of World Tourism Day on Sunday, Maharashtra Tourism Development Corporation (MTDC) managing director Paraag Jaiin Nainuttia said, "Mumbai has the most amazing skyline, which offers an impressive and a breathtaking view. There are many tourists' spots which look outstanding from the top. The idea is to provide an enthralling experience to people and boost Maharashtra's tourism. Mumbai attracts a lot of foreign and domestic tourists... Heli-tourism will definitely help in increasing the footfall."
