Ayodhya to soon start chopper joyrides!

All those visiting Ayodhya will soon be able to take helicopter rides to enjoy a bird’s eye view of the city.

Reports have it that the Uttar Pradesh State Tourism Development Corporation Ltd has invited proposals from companies/agencies operating helicopter services for the joyrides in Ayodhya on a pilot basis.

Referring to this, Principal Secretary of Tourism Mukesh Meshram stated that they have a state-owned helipad in Lucknow as well as in Ayodhya, and that they are now looking at various aspects, from providing air taxi facility to those wanting to take a chopper from Lucknow to Ayodhya or to those wanting to have a quick joyride over Ayodhya.

In December 2022, Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath stated that Ayodhya tourism will increase ten times by 2024, and so all efforts are being made to achieve that target.

Ayodhya is also set to get an international airport which will likely get ready this year itself, which is expected to drive up tourist numbers in the region. This is also one of the reasons why the Yogi government is looking to start the helicopter facility.
