India-based Deccan Aviation is offering on-demand helicopter “shuttle” flights between Bangalore’s international airport and Electronic City and HAL airport, two business districts that are a two-hour drive from the city. Per-person prices for one-way trips are close to $130 for Electronic City and $105 for HAL airport.

Deccan said the helicopter flight takes less than 20 minutes. Check-in time is 30 minutes before takeoff. Each passenger is allowed 26 pounds of luggage.

The operator uses a Bell 206B3 JetRanger light single for its SkyLimo service. “We currently fly seven to nine passengers a day and we expect this to increase,” general marketing manager Clive Lewis told AIN.
