Chandigarh to Shimla in 20 minutes by helicopter taxi
June 5 (TravelAndy): A helicopter taxi service has cut travel time between the north Indian cities of Shimla and Chandigarg to just 20 minutes.
The government of India’s Himachal Pradesh state launched the service on Monday.
The state’s chief minister Jairam Thakur flagged off the Shimla-Chandigarh heli taxi service from the Jubbarhatti Airport near the hill station.
“The Queen of Hills (Shimla), being one of the leading travel destinations, would now be connected through heli taxi service from Chandigarh. We would try to connect other cities of the state through the service in future,” said Thakur.
