India’s Flying taxi service has been launched in Bangaluru, India on today at 1:30 pm. Total nine passengers were part of the maiden trip of this flying taxi. A private company executive Ajay Kumar completed his trip between Electronic City and Kempegowda International Airport (KIA) in less than 15 minutes. At present, the Heli taxi service is working between KIA and Electronic City while the HAL airport will also be added in the next couple of weeks. The starting fare of this Flying Taxi is Rs 4,130 per seat, which includes GST also. The pickup services started from airport terminal to the helipad, and it allows to carry 15 kg luggage, but an extra charge for more luggage will be implied only when your luggage weight is more than 15 Kg.

Thumby Aviation Chairman and Managing director Captain K N G Nair said,”The working operation of the second phase will be launched from BIAL to luxury hotels. We are looking into the matter of safety and aviation requirements for landing and take off helicopters”. The “Helitaxii” services use helicopters to help people in Bangaluru, and it reduces the travel time of a 3-hour road journey to just 15 Minutes. The fastest booking option makes it more simple than any other booking option; you can book your taxi over a call or through the website.
