Chandigarh to Shimla in just 20 minutes

The Government of Himachal Pradesh has initiated a Heli-Taxi service in association with Pawan Hans Limited for promoting hill tourism. The capital city of three states, Punjab, Haryana and Himachal Pradesh, are under this project. The chopper ride is between Shimla-Chandigarh-Shimla.

The amenity will start from June 4 this year. It will have limited service at the beginning and will be increased post inspecting the performance and tourists demand.

The chopper will have 20 seats and will cost you Rs. 2,999 per seat. The service will be available on Monday and Friday.

There is no direct service available between these two cities hence the only road medium takes nearly 4 hours to commute. But this morning flight will cover the distance of 120 km in just 20 minutes. The chopper will head start from Shimla at 8:00 am and reach Chandigarh at 8:20 am. The second shift of the helicopter will start from Chandigarh airport at 9:00 in the morning and will reach Shimla at 9:20 am.

Jairam Thakur, Chief Minister of Himachal Pradesh, will onset the first service.

Post Kullu, Shimla is the second city to get connected with Chandigarh via air. Flights to Kolkata, Ahmedabad and Indore will also start soon.

This initiative will surely give a lift to the tourism industry.
