Bengaluru’s ‘Airport to City’ Helicopter Rides Will Be Cheaper Than You Think!

People who frequent cab services for travelling in Bengaluru often find themselves at a loss getting a taxi during peak hours. Even if they are lucky enough to hail one, their day doesn’t begin without spending a few hours stuck in traffic.

Well, soon you could fly your way out of all the above-mentioned hassles – literally.

HeliTaxi, a helicopter shuttle service, is expected to be functional from the Kempegowda International Airport within three months. The scheme was announced by Union Minister of State for Civil Aviation Jayant Sinha earlier this month.

“The aerial service will ferry air passengers to and from the airport to the city faster than private cars, cabs or buses can through dense vehicular traffic on both ways,” said Bengaluru International Airport Limited (BIAL) Managing Director Harsha Raghavan, reports India Today.

Tying up with a private helicopter service provider Thumby Aviation Ltd, the aerial ferry will help passengers travelling between the airport and the city on demand.
