Now you can book Kedarnath helicopter tickets online

Kedarnath: Uttarakhand Tourism recently launched an online portal for booking chopper tickets for the Kedarnath Yatra. This facilitates pilgrims, who will now be able to access the online platform to book air tickets for Kedarnath through authorised heli companies.

The online facility was started from August and, reportedly, enabled more than 1000 pilgrims to book their tickets to Kedarnath in the first two days. Further, from September 1, the second phase of helicopter services will start. Passengers will have a window of 24 hours to cancel their tickets before their journey commences.

Dilip Jawalkar, Chief Executive Officer of Uttarakhand Civil Aviation Development Authority (UCADA) and Tourism Secretary, said that the newly launched online ticketing system will help bring transparency to the ticketing process, and also reduce chances of corruption.

He added that although 70 per cent of the ticket bookings will be processed online, the remaining percentage will be processed offline and on the spot. To ensure that the offline booking process is done without any hassle, three offline counters will be set up in Guptkashi and two in Phata. However, because the internet services are always not proper at the Sirsi centre, the offline booking of Sirsi helipad will be done from the second counter in Phata.
