SASB Chief Executive Officer Navin K Choudhary said the board has joined hands with Global Vectra Private Limited and Himalayan Heli Services Private Limited for providing services on Baltal-Panjtarni-Baltal sector, and with state-run Pawan Hans Limited for the Pahalgam-Panjtarni-Pahalgam sector.
The annual Yatra to the cave shrine in the South Kashmir Himalayas will take place between June 28 to August 21.
The online booking facility shall be available on the websites www.onlineglobalhelicorp.com and www.himalayanheli.com for Baltal-Panjtarni sector and www.booking.pawanhans.co.in for Pahalgam-Panjtarni sector.
The CEO added that the one way passenger fare for Baltal-Panjtarni and Pahalgam-Panjtarni sectors have been fixed at Rs 1500 and Rs 2400, respectively.
Choudhary further said the pilgrims seeking chopper service need not to register through the designated bank branches, as their applications for chopper tickets containing the required information will be treated as Yatra permits.
However, such worshippers will not be able to board unless they produce the required compulsory health certificate issued by an authorised doctor and institutes notified by their respective state governments.
They will have to furnish the certificates at the time of boarding at Baltal or Pahalgam, he said.
