1st Helicopter service in Indonesia



The Indonesian capital Jakarta is famous for traffic congestion and is considered one of the worst traffic places in the world.  Most residents spend at least 2 hours on the road every day, especially getting from the capital to Soekarno-Hatta International Airport, located on the outskirts of the city, is even more daring.

To solve the traffic nightmare, Mr. Denon Prawiraatmadja, CEO of Whitesky Aviation, has just launched Helicity service.  Accordingly, customers can fly from the airport to their designated destination within the Greater Jakarta area and vice versa in just 15 minutes, from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily.

 To use the service, customers must book at least 1 day in advance, with service fees ranging from 8 million rupiah to 20 million rupiah (555 USD - 1,387 USD), depending on distance.  This price does not include departure or landing fee, about 5 million rupiah.  Therefore, a trip from Soekarno-Hatta Airport to the suburbs in South Jakarta could cost around 30 million rupiah on a Bell 505 helicopter for 3 passengers.  

A Bell 429 helicopter flight, which can accommodate up to 6 passengers, could cost around 80 million rupiah.

 The idea of ​​using "helicopter taxi" has been cherished by many companies such as Uber and Grab.  However, according to an urban planner of Nirwono Yoga, this is not the core solution.  Since helicopter users are of the upper class, the number is limited ... To reduce traffic congestion, it is crucial to rearrange the layout of the city's settlements as well as integrate large volume transportation.
