Mumbai, Jan 6: Tourists visiting Mumbai can now get an aerial glimpse of the buzzing metropolis as Maharashtra Tourism Development Corporation (MTDC) has joined hands with Pawan Hans for heli-tourism.
These joy rides are aimed to attract tourists who have limited time at hand but wish to explore Mumbai and other parts of the state quickly, MTDC said in a release here.
The helicopters will cost Rs 3,200 (inclusive of taxes) per passenger for a 10-minute joyride.
Heli-Tours will initially begin in Mumbai and will subsequently be extended to other tourism destinations like Elephanta Island, Ajanta Caves, Ellora caves and Shirdi.
"Heli-Tourism in Maharashtra opens up a world of new possibilities for travellers and sightseers.
With the basic idea of providing more to tourists, we are looking to boost potential tourism in the state. We are optimistic that this new initiative will be well received and see tremendous demand in the days to come," MTDC Managing Director Paraag Jaiin Nainuttia said.
