In a bid to promote heli-tourism between two state capitals of Chandigarh and Shimla, the government of Himachal Pradesh and Pawan Hans have decided to start heli-taxi services for INR 2999 from June 4 this year.Thanks to this new service, the travel time between the two state capitals will come down from a 3-hour something drive to a 20-minute flying time. The chopper, that can seat 20 people, will take off every Monday and Friday. The starting time for passengers flying from Shimla to Chandigarh will be 8am, while those going to Shimla can board the taxi at 9am.
