Air Taxis


Does anyone know anything about the air taxi service.

I have read mixed reports. Are they still operating or have they been suspended?

Thanks in advance

Yep, still not restarted. But now the reasons given are purely economical, 'not enough business' - the government advice against them for security got dropped almost 2 years ago. But for sure they'll be available as (very expensive) private hire, from Srilankan and if not from Deccan Air; it's the regular daily service with ticket-per-seat that is still suspended.

All the best,

Deccan Air are advertising heavily for helicopter flights in connection with SriLankan flights for FlySmiles members.
