Urban Air Mobility company, BLADE India, has announced the resumption of its scheduled by-the-seat services in Maharashtra today.
Due to the spike in cases of COVID-19 during the second wave followed by the Maharashtra monsoon, BLADE had only been flying charters and air-medical evacuation services.
With business and leisure travel bouncing back, BLADE has resumed its daily by-the-seat operations 5 days a week starting the 4th of October; bookings are open.
BLADE is the only air carrier connecting Mumbai and Pune. The 40-minute journey greatly benefits travellers who would otherwise need 6 hours of road travel or 4+ hours of airport procedures and flying.
Prices for this route start at INR 12,500/- per person with complimentary pick-up and drop-off services, lounge access and benefits from brands such as Audi, BMW Excellence Club, Quorum and many more.
BLADE also flies to Aamby Valley from both Mumbai and Pune on Fridays and Mondays. People can make the most of their weekend with prices starting at INR 5000/- per person.
Flights from Mumbai will take off daily from Juhu Aerodrome, except on Wednesdays, where they lift off from Mahalaxmi Racecourse.
In Pune, the helicopters will land at BLADE vertiport in Yoo Villas, Kharadi and on the airstrip in Aamby Valley, 5 minutes by car to the Aamby Valley villas.
BLADE’s Flier Relations team will also help make the ground transfer and stay bookings as seamless as possible. BLADE’s centrally-located vertiports are staffed by a seasoned Flier Experience team.
With wait times of less than 15 minutes, the entire travel experience is quick, seamless and efficient. Bookings can be made on the website or with the Flier Relations team.
Speaking on the resumption of their Maharashtra operations, Mr. Karanpal Singh, Founder, BLADE India said, “People are now looking for safety, security and hygiene, these are BLADE’s core strengths. We are set to relaunch our by-the-seat services in Maharashtra. A product designed to deliver time efficiency and convenience.”
BLADE also offers personalized charter service, BLADE Anywhere and bed to bed air medevac service, BLADE Care.
BLADE’s charter guests are assigned dedicated relationship managers, customized onboard cuisine, pick-up and drop-off, and varied partner benefits.
