Apart from private jet services in our set routes, we also take queries for anywhere in India. Charter customers flying to routes we do not operate in might not get the same BLADE experience as in our set routes but will avail the various benefits from our partners

Our customers can fly in the extreme safety of our BELL 407 and Airbus HC130 helicopters for short haul air travel and in Citation II and Turboprop for longer journeys.

Our flight operations will be done based on instructions for aviation in domestic air space from the Director General of Civil Aviation, Government of India.

FAQs

Can I charter a helicopter from Mumbai-Goa?

While you can charter a small business jet or Turboprop from Mumbai – Goa, covering that distance in a helicopter is difficult and more expensive. The maximum helicopter flight is 251 nautical miles i.e roughly around 464 kms which makes it ideal for short distances. If a helicopter is used for longer distances, it’ll have to land en route for re-fueling making it an expensive affair.

 

Can I get my pet to fly with me?

Pets have to be tranquilized and, in a cage, to be on board for our charter services. Owners must also share their pet’s vaccination documents as well. Pets on our per person carriage contract services unfortunately aren’t allowed as the other flyers travelling with them might be uncomfortable.

How much does a private jet cost?

Renting a private jet depends on numerous factors such as the type of aircraft, the distance traveled, landing fees, parking fees and number of days of travel. Price of a 6-seater helicopter in India can differ from a business jet. At BLADE, our base price for charters starts at INR 95,000 per hour.

 

Do you provide helicopter joyrides in Mumbai?

Since we are an Urban Air Mobility company, our main aim is to help people cut their travel time by offering convenient mobility options. Hence, we have scheduled helicopter flights between Mumbai and Pune. We do not provide helicopter joyrides within Mumbai. However, we will be starting our intra-city services soon.

Health & Safety Protocol

We have been hard at work over the past few months designing an industry-leading health and safety protocol, now implemented in our services. With the skies opening up, our team is well prepared to help you start flying again – and in a way that provides you with safety and peace of mind.

All pilots, passengers, and BLADE employees undergo touch less temperature checks.

Pilots, passengers and BLADE Lounge personnel are required to wear masks and face shields (plus sanitary gloves for pilots and employees).

All aircraft interiors are electrostatically decontaminated using an airline-grade fogging system before every flight.
