Bengaluru To Start Flying Taxi Service To Curb Traffic Problems : If you live in Bengaluru or happen to have visited the city, the traffic problem will add to your daily schedule. In order to solve this, a company called Thumby Aviation has started helicopter taxi service.
In order to carry people from city’s Kempegowda International Airport to Electronic City, Phase 1 and HAL Airport, the ride will operate.
It will not only curb pollution and traffic problems but also shorten the time span of travelling. The trip that took more than 2 hours earlier, will now only take around 15 minutes.
As of now, there will be three round-trips between Kempegowda International Airport and Electronic City from 6.30 AM to 9.30 AM and another three from 3.00 PM to 6.15 PM.
An app called ‘Heli Taxii’ has been developed on which you can choose your flight, your pick-up and drop locations, luggage information and number of seats.
One seat will cost ₹ 4,130 and includes the drive from the KIA terminal to the helipad. Luggage up to 15kgs will be free and beyond that, extra charge will be levied.
