Online booking of helicopter tickets for Shri Amarnathji Yatra 2014 will commence on Mar 17.

Shri Amarnathji Shrine Board (SASB) has made arrangements with Pawan Hans Limited and Global Vectra Helicorp Ltd for providing heli-services on the Neelgrath(Baltal)-Panjtarni-Neelgrath(Baltal) Sector and Himalayan Heli Services Pvt Ltd for heli-services on the Pahalgam-Panjtarni-Pahalgam Sector.

Navin K. Choudhary, Chief Executive Officer, SASB, said that on-line booking facility will be available to the intending devotees from Mar 17.

He said based on competitive bidding, the one way per passenger heli-fare for Neelgrath (Baltal)-Panjtarni and Pahalgam-Panjtarni Sector has been fixed at Rs.1950 and Rs. 4190 respectively.

Choudhary said the pilgrims, who wish to avail helicopter service for their pilgrimage, are not required to seek advance registration banks as their applications for purchasing helicopter tickets contain the required
information and shall be treated as 'Yatra permits' for undertaking the pilgrimage.

All such pilgrims should not be allowed to board the services unless they produce the required health certificate issued by authorised doctor/ institutes which have been notified by their respective State Governments, he said.

Thus, the helicopter-travelling pilgrims should have to furnish compulsory health
certificates at the time of boarding the helicopter at Nelgrath or Pahalgam, without which the boarding passes will not be issued to them.
