As part of its expansion strategy, FlyBlade India (“BLADE India”) has begun offering same-day return helicopter services from Bengaluru to Tirupati Airport. The flights can accommodate 5 passengers at a time and are available “on demand” for INR 3,50,000 + GST. They can be chartered or crowdsourced. The HAL flight from Bangalore airport will depart between 9:15 and 9:30 in the morning, with the return flight departing between 4:00 and 4:15 in the evening.
The service intends to improve Tirupati’s connectivity and make travel easier and more efficient for pilgrims, especially the elderly. Bookings on this route can now be made on the BLADE India website or by calling the Flier Relations team at 1800 102 5233.
Amit Dutta, Managing Director of BLADE India, commented on the event by saying, “Pilgrimage in India portrays itself as a transforming voyage, but it still offers accessibility issues, especially for the elderly. Tirupati is one of the most cherished travel locations and is a symbol of devotion. In light of this, BLADE India works to enhance connectivity to this holy location with the aim of connecting well-known locations that are not normally accessible or well-connected. We are happy that BLADE India offers an alternative to the traditional Tirupati darshan, which requires two full days of travel. Now, pilgrims can make the same celestial trek and return to the city the same day, weaving a tapestry of ease, speed, and timelessness.
