BLADE India launches helicopter services between Bengaluru and Tirupati Airport

FlyBlade India (“BLADE India”) has launched same day return helicopter services connecting Bengaluru to Tirupati Airport as part of its expansion plan. The flights are available ‘on demand’ basis and are available at INR 3,50,000 + GST accommodating 5 guests at a time which can be crowdsourced and/or booked via charter. Onward journey from the Bangalore airport shall start in the morning hours between 09:15 am to 09:30 am from HAL, whereas the return flights will be in the evening between 04:00 pm to 4:15 pm.

The service aims at enhancing the connectivity to Tirupati and making travel more convenient and time effective for pilgrims, especially the elders. This route is now operational and open for bookings on the BLADE India website or through the Flier Relations team at 1800 102 5233.

Commenting on the launch , Amit Dutta, Managing Director, BLADE India said, “Pilgrimage in India presents itself as a transformative odyssey, but it remains fraught with accessibility challenges, particularly for the elderly. Among the cherished destinations, Tirupati stands as a beacon of devotion. Keeping this in mind, BLADE India endeavors to improve connectivity to this spiritual destination with its goal to connect popular destinations which are otherwise not accessible or well connected. We are delighted that the customary Tirupati darshan, encompassing two full days of travel, finds respite with BLADE India. Pilgrims can now traverse the same celestial journey, returning to the city on the very day, unraveling a tapestry of convenience, swiftness, and timeless efficacy.”
