Guwahati: Delhi-based Heritage Aviation, one of India’s fastest growing helicopter and aircraft charter companies, will soon commence operations in the Northeast region. The company has been awarded some route under Government of India’s UDAN scheme for operation of their helicopter services.
The company has pioneered helicopter flying in the country and has both the capability and expertise to undertake some of the most difficult helicopter missions for search and rescue, disaster relief, aerial work and leisure and pilgrimage tours.
“Initially, we have plans to begin with its 7-seater (Airbus H 130T2) helicopter services on the Guwahati-Nagaon, Guwahati-Tura and Tura-Shillong routes. Two flights will ply everyday on the first two routes and the Tura-Shillong route will have one flight daily,” Rohit Mathur, CEO of Heritage Aviation, told EastMojo.
“We want to start flights sometime in the month of November,” he added.
The company had also applied for flights on the Guwahati-Shillong route, but they have not yet been awarded with clearance for that route as it is still under process. The ministry is yet to take a decision on that route as there are other operators who have shown interest, said Mathur.
The company was awarded letters from Ministry of Civil Aviation (MoCA) on September 17 and they plan to commence operations from November 2021.
Heritage Aviation started its journey in 2009 with a small helipad at Guptkashi in Uttarakhand to provide helicopter services to those travelling to and from Kedarnath temple.
