A few months before, helicopter services provider BLADE India had launched personalised choppers for a lavish and socially distanced travel experience. Now, to take the luxurious experiences a notch higher, the company has come up with some end-to-end facilities under the programme ‘BLADE Anywhere’ to be monitored by a dedicated relationship manager. The new list of facilities includes personalised pick-up and drop-off, customised food and beverage menus and more. Prices of these personalised air charters will start at around ₹95,000, apart from per hour landing charges and handling fees.
Private Choppers With Personalised Pick-Up And Drop-Off Facilities, Along With Customised Food Menus
Demand for private charters had been on a rise among wealthy travellers for safe and socially-distanced travel amid the coronavirus pandemic. BLADE India makes state-of-the-art helicopter arrangements for travelling to Mumbai, Pune, Shirdi or any other destination. Recently, it has introduced the high-end ‘BLADE Anywhere’ programme to ensure luxurious, safe and comfortable travel of its patrons. Under this programme, whenever the customers will book a charter, a dedicated relationship manager will be assigned to cater to all their travel requirements. Via on ground premium automobile partners, the customers will enjoy personalised pick-up and drop-off facilities. They will also receive customised food and beverage menus, along with a warm hospitability. Also, one can skip the crowd of public flights with reduced touchpoints and short waits by booking the ‘BLADE Anywhere’ experience. They will also get specially designed face masks.
Rates of these charters will start at ₹95,000 in Maharashtra, excluding per hour landing charges and handling fees. Customers can make bookings through BLADE India website, mobile application or flier relations team, according to a Business Standard report.
Fly-By-Seat Facilities To Commence In A Month
Due to COVID-19, BLADE India had been accepting bookings only for private charters. Now, it has announced that it will start taking bookings for fly-by-seat flights as well from next month. In its website, the company has stated, “BLADE India will start operating daily flights between Mumbai and Pune from November 2. BLADE has adapted leading industry-standard stringent health and sanitization measures to ensure safe travel. We are now open to book-by-seat and bulk tickets sale for daily flights.”
BLADE India has implemented various safety measures to ensure safe travel amid the pandemic. All pilots, passengers, and BLADE employees are undergoing touchless thermal screenings. Passengers and employees need to wear masks and face shields. Pilots and employees will also have to wear sanitary gloves. The sanitization personnel are electrostatically decontaminating the helicopter interiors using an airline-grade fogging system before every flight.
