gandhinagar: Chopper service between cities soon, heli-hubs in 4 cities, says Scindia


NEW DELHI: You will soon be able to hop in a chopper to travel between Pune and Mumbai Juhu; Mumbai’s Mahalakshmi Race Course and Pune; and Gandhinagar and Ahmedabad.
Heliports will be developed along three expressways — Delhi-Bombay, Ambala-Kotpuli and Ambala-Bhatinda-Jamnagar — to ensure timely evacuation for medical treatment for accident victims.
Union aviation minister Jyotiraditya Scindia on Friday said that India will develop four heli-hubs in India — Mumbai Juhu, Guwahati, Delhi and Bangalore (HAL Airport).
“We have identified 10 cities and 82 routes to develop helicopter corridors across the country, starting with 6 between Juhu—Pune-Juhu; Mahalakshmi Race Course-Pune; Gandhinagar-Ahmedabad-Gandhinagar. To give a boost to Helicopter Emergency Medical Services in India, heliports will be developed alongside 3 expressways (Delhi-Bombay, Ambala-Kotpuli and Ambala-Bhatinda-Jamnagar). These would ensure timely evacuation and medical treatment for accident victims,” he said at a helicopter summit in Dehradun on Friday.
“A dedicated helicopter acceleration cell will be set up at Union aviation ministry, which will provide regulatory and policy direction to instil ease of doing business for the helicopter industry. As part of the new heli-Policy, helicopter operators will be exempted from paying parking deposit and landing charges. Airports Authority of India and air traffic control officials will be provided with adequate training. We will work collaboratively with all the State governments to improve ease of doing business for the helicopter industry,” he said.
