The nation’s first integrated heliport, built at a cost of Rs 100 crores, has been constructed over an area of 25 acres in North Delhi’s Rohini. The terminal building has a capacity of 150 passengers, four hangars, a parking capacity of 16 helicopters and 9 parking bays. It has an independent Air Traffic Control, fire and a fuelling services area.

The heliport will help reduce congestion at Delhi Airport which handles 40-50 helicopter arrivals and departures daily. It also offers offshore transport and can connect remote and inaccessible islands such as those of the Andaman & Nicobar and Lakshadweep.

Besides Delhi Darshan, flights will soon be made available for Agra, Jaipur, Shimla, and Vaishno Devi too.
