The total duration of the trip will be 40 minutes as compared to the 6-8 hours taken by road or train to travel. The main objective of this initiative is to boost Regional Connectivity Services in the state which would allow people to travel at a lesser time without paying too much.
These services will be active across all 13 districts, selected cities and towns of Uttarakhand. According to the distance and time, the chopper service has been priced between Rs.1000-Rs.5000.
