BLADE, a helicopter transport company, announced the debut of its chopper services in Goa on Friday, giving trips to both locals and tourists.
The helicopter service is intended for incoming tourism and will connect Goa Airport to North Goa, South Goa, and Old Goa — a region with a cluster of heritage monuments, according to the business.
The service was started at the Aguada helipad in North Goa by state chief minister Pramod Sawant.
According to the corporation, BLADE has three landing spots for its services in the state: North Goa (in Surla), South Goa, and Old Airport.
According to Amit Dutta, managing director of BLADE India, the goal of heli-tourism services is to make areas more accessible through short-haul air mobility.
"The Goa airport and North-South Goa have traditionally been disconnected due to the length of time required to go by road, and this has been a source of frustration for visitors and locals alike. The goal is to enable local communities and companies thrive by bridging the gap between the two places "he declared
BLADE India, a joint venture between New York-based BLADE Urban Air Mobility Inc and Delhi-based venture capital firm Hunch Ventures, has added Goa as its third state.
It entered the Indian market in March 2019 with the introduction of its services in Maharashtra.
