Residents from Bengaluru who prefer a shorter travel time to the Kempegowda International Airport in Devanahalli will soon be able to take a helicopter ride from the city's HAL Airport.

Five days a week, helicopter services will be available to and from the international airport. The service will be launched by BLADE, a company that operates choppers in Bengaluru and other parts of India. The services will go live on October 10th.

BLADE announced on its website that the company will soon start its intra-city services in Bengaluru. “Fliers can now skip the painful 120-minute commute in traffic and opt for a quick 15-minute flight instead. Whitefield and Electronic City will be added subsequently,” the company said.

Cost of the helicopter services

The flights will be two per day, with the frequency likely to increase based on demand, according to the company. One-way tickets will cost Rs 3,250 plus taxes per passenger and can be purchased online. According to a company statement, there will be two flights in the five-seater single-engine aircraft: one at 9 a.m. from Bengaluru Airport to HAL and one at 4.15 p.m. on the same route.

Although helicopter services to the International Airport were launched in the past too, they did not gain traction owing to a lack of patrons. A service launched in 2018 from Electronic City to the airport was discontinued.
