kodagu: Take a Helicopter Tour from Jakkur to Bangalore to Kabini, Kodagu | Bangalore News

BENGALURU: From December 11, tourists can book a helicopter flight from Jakkur Airfield to Bengaluru to Kabini / Kodagu and reach their destination within an hour. Operating on a seat purchase basis, the new helicopter service will be available every day of the week except Tuesday and Wednesday.
The service is hosted by BLADE India, an urban air mobility platform, in collaboration with BLADE New York and Delhi-based venture capital firm Hunch Ventures. BLADE began helicopter operations in Maharashtra in 2019, carrying passengers from Mumbai to Pune to Shirdi. In Karnataka, it launched private charter services covering Bengaluru, Kodagu, Kabini, Chikkamagaluru and Hampi on December 18, 2020.
BLADE will provide helicopter services from Jakkur at noon and passengers will be able to reach Kabinie and Kodagu within an hour. By road, it usually takes 6-7 hours to reach Kodgau. The goal is to connect congested and inaccessible land roads with an efficient and affordable air transport system.
The fare for a one-way ticket from Bengaluru to both destinations is Rs 16,000 per seat. The company said it wants to give travelers a full holistic experience by taking care of everything, including baggage facilities, ground transfer and partner benefits.
Amit Dutta, Managing Director of BLADE India, said: “Karnataka boasts of some of the most beautiful destinations in the country, but accessibility is a problem. A six to seven hour drive from Bengaluru eats away at the precious time travelers might otherwise spend enjoying their vacation. »For flight schedules from Bangalore and routes, go to www.flyblade.in
