BENGLURU : A helicopter shuttle service was opened in Bengluru airport and the city, in a bid to provide last mile connectivity. The Bengluru International Airport Limited (BIAL), located in Devanahalli, about 40 km from the city centre, had tied up with helicopter service provider Thumby Aviation to ferry air passengers to and from the city. The service is expected to reduce the time taken to cover the distance from 2 hours to 15 minutes. The helicopter will seat up to six people apart from the pilot and the service will cost Rs. 3,500 plus GST.
