The company issued a statement that read, “Passengers can now skip the painful 2-hour travel in traffic and choose for a fast 15-minute chopper instead to Bengaluru airport. The services will be launched at Whitefield and Electronic City subsequently”

This is not the first time Bengaluru witnessed a chopper service. In 2018, chopper services were launched from Electronics City to Kempegowda International Airport to reduce travel. It was later discontinued as it did not receive enough response from the passengers.
