BLADE India resumes operations on Mumbai-Shirdi route

Urban air mobility provider has resumed by-the-seat service to Shirdi from Mumbai. Mumbai-Shirdi takes 6-7 hours on the road with devotees having to spend 2 days to complete their trip. With BLADE, customers can fly to Shirdi comfortably in an hour, and be back on the same day. BLADE India is also offering customers who are in need of special assistance or an end-to-end holistic travel experience, a VIP darshan service during their pilgrimage, at an add-on-price. 

Customers can relax and treat themselves to varied F&B options available  at the BLADE lounge in Shirdi before or after their darshan. 
BLADE will be flying from Mahalaxmi vertiport every Monday and from Juhu vertiport on Thursday and Saturday at 11 am. The by-the-seat service is priced at INR 18,000 + GST for one way/passenger. However, the brand  has introduced a limited-period introductory price of INR 15,300 for one way/passenger.
People traveling in a group may also crowdsource the entire craft or avail the BLADE Anywhere personalised charter service, which recently started charters to Goa from Pune and Mumbai.  
Speaking on the resumption of Shirdi operations, Amit Dutta, Managing Director – BLADE India said, “Enduring long hours of road travel to Shirdi is very time consuming and tedious for the devotees, especially the elderly. We aim to make places more accessible and travel more convenient for our fliers by introducing routes to solve the pain point of congestion and commute.”  
BLADE aims to build a network of short-haul routes that aren't as accessible and cut the travel time significantly by providing a seamless, comfortable and convenient travel solution through it’s by the seat offering.
