From Nov 18, take a chopper between Mum, Pune and Shirdi

Come November 18, and people travelling between Mumbai, Pune and Shirdi will have one more transport option to choose from. United States-based urban mobility startup BLADE, better known as the Uber of helicopter services, on Tuesday announced that it will launch helicopter services between the cities.
BLADE India, the Indian arm of BLADEwhich claims to be the largest chopper service for civilians in the US – had announced last year that it planned to start services from Mumbai by March 2019. Delayed by a few months, the company is now set to launch chopper flights on a perseat basis between the three cities.
ABlade India spokesperson said the inaugural fares per seat for Mumbai-Pune will start at Rs 19,900,
Mumbai-Shirdi at Rs 21,900, and Pune-Shirdi at Rs 18,900 without GST.
“The first chopper ride will take passengers from Pune to Mumbai, then fly to the temple town of Shirdi, and return to Pune. The average flight will reduce 4 to 6 hour journeys to all of 35 minutes,” said a spokesperson for Blade India, a joint venture between Blade and a private equity fund Hunch Ventures.
