The urban air mobility company BLADE India has started two additional helicopter flights between Bangalore International Airport and Hindustan Aeronautical Airport (HAL) in Bengaluru. With a starting ticket price of Rs 3,250 (taxes not included). A 12-minute air taxi service is expected to save customers two hours starting on October 10, 2022.
Bengaluru is undoubtedly regarded as the world\’s most congested metropolis. As a result, it can take up to 120 minutes to travel through its streets from HAL to Bangalore airport. BLADE hopes to cut this travel time to 12 minutes by providing two helicopter trips. Additionally, the first leaves at 9 am, while the second arrives at 4:15 pm.
The central business hub of Bengaluru is not far from HAL. As a result, it is home to renowned shopping areas like Indiranagar and Koramangala, as well as IT parks. These single-engine planes with 5 passengers every weekday will take off and land.
Is flying travel the populace\’s solution to Bangalore\’s traffic?
These readily available helicopter trips may only be practical for emergencies, according to most of us. However, the operator stated that it somewhat seeks to make air mobility accessible.
\”Our ability to democratise urban air mobility is the key to our success. With today\’s launch, we can provide a convenient entry point even though helicopter services are a high-end offering, according to the managing director of BLADE India, Amit Dutta. Additionally, the company specialising in short-haul flights has agreed to provide over 200 air taxis to India by 2026.
