K T Rama Rao, IT Minister of Telangana, as part of revamp of Telangana Tourism introduced Helicopter rides ( HeliRides ) over the city at 10 AM at an event in Necklace Road. After the success of hot air balloon rises in December, Hyderabad citizens will now be able to enjoy helicopter rides to have a bird’s eye view of the historic city.
Speaking at the event, KTR said that he hopes this initiative is successful as it is affordable and enjoyable at the same time. Hyderabad Aerial trip is an initiative by ‘Heli Tourism in Hyderabad’ in collaboration with Indwell Aviation Private Limited. The 10-15 minutes joy ride will cost Rs 3,500 per person. If this initiative receives a good response, the government is planning to start similar services in various places like Nagarjuna Sagar, Warangal, Karimnagar, Nallamalla forest and along Godavari river.
So let’s fly and make it count already.
