Now the 3 hour journey from Chandigarh to Shimla has been reduced to a mere 20 minutes with the introduction of helicopter taxis.
What Is It?
Reducing travel time to a mere 20 minutes, now you can board the helicopter taxi service from Chandigarh airport to Shimla airport. The first ride took off on June 4th, Monday. The 120 km journey can now be covered by air in just ₹2,999 and this service will be available to the public on Mondays and Fridays.
What Do We Know?
Operated by Pawan Hans, this will be a 20-seat helicopter which flies only once a day with fixed timings. It will leave from Shimla airport at 8 am and reach Chandigarh at 8.20 am. Then leave from Chandigarh at 9 am and arrive at Shimla on 9.20 am.
For the month of June, many of the seats are already booked, but if you’re still willing to grab a seat, you can book directly from the Pawan Hans website.
