Transportation between Bengaluru Airport and the city can now be just a matter of 15 minutes! Yes, the current two-hour-long journey from Bengaluru city to Kempegowda International Airport in Devanahalli (or vice versa) is going to take not more than 15 minutes, thanks to BLADE India (an urban air mobility company), which is all set to begin chopper services to and from BLR airport, starting from October 10.
BLADE India has partnered with Hunch Ventures to launch the airport chopper service in Bengaluru. Two helicopters will be operated between Bengaluru Airport and Hindustan Aeronautics Limited Airport (HAL); five days a week. The chopper, with a seating capacity of 5 people, will take off from the airport at 9:00 IST and the return flight is scheduled at 16:15 IST. The fare for each passenger is set at INR 3,250.
Initially, the chopper service to Bangalore Airport will be available only from HAL. Very soon, BLADE hopes to begin helicopter operations from Whitefield and Electronic City to the airport.
