March 6 (TravelAndy): If times equals money for you, consider taking the 15-minute helicopter ride to the Bangalore airport from the city instead of spending close to two hours getting there by road, said reports.

Thumby Aviation started India’s first helicopter taxi service with a Bell in Bangalore earlier this week.

The ride costs INR3,500 plus GST and this includes pick up and drop to the airport terminal from the helipad.

For now, the services are available from 06.30 to 09.30 and from 15.00 to 18.15 between the Kempegowda International Airport and Electronic City. 

Thumby will also include flights to HAL Airport in the next few weeks.

Passengers can book their seats through an app called ‘Heli Taxii’.
