Pune-based Panchshil Realty announced that Fly Blade India Pvt. Ltd. has started operating daily helicopter services between Pune and Mumbai from Panchshil’s YOO Villas helipad in Pune.
YOO Villas is an exclusive enclave of signature villas designed by global celebrity designer Kelly Hoppen and is located close to the bustling business district of Kharadi in East Pune.
Currently, this helicopter service is the only air connectivity option as there are no commercial flights operating between Pune and Mumbai. Outbound and inbound passengers looking for quick air connectivity with Mumbai now have a convenient option.
This helicopter service is a fly-by-seat solution where users pay only for the required number of seats just like they would when flying with any commercial airline.
Fly Blade India is currently offering two services a day from the YOO Villas helipad, Pune to Mumbai and two services a day from Mumbai to YOO Villas helipad. The services will operate to Mahalaxmi Racecourse in south Mumbai and to suburban Juhu.
“With the launch of this first-of-its-kind helicopter service from YOO Villas helipad, the travel time between Pune and Mumbai will be reduced to just a fraction of what it takes by road. Punekars and Mumbaikars can now do day-return trips,” according to Sagar Chordia, Director, Panchshil Realty.
“Owners of Panchshil homes and our corporate occupiers in nearby Kharadi now have a quick and convenient commuting option. Since our helipad is co-located with YOO Villas, owners from outside Pune will now be able to land at their own doorstep. Intending buyers will now have yet another compelling reason to invest in and buy a Panchshil home,” he added.
Karanpal Singh, Founder & Managing Director-Hunch Ventures & Investments Pvt. Ltd. said, “Blade India is an urban air mobility company that is focused on providing customized mobility solutions to its users and partners. Going forward, safe and convenient access will be key to a quality work-life balance.”
“We are glad to associate with Panchshil Realty for this service which will provide seamless connectivity between Mumbai and Pune. Now, people will have an option instead of spending hours commuting via road,” he added.
