Port Blair, Jan 03: It
has been observed that numerous individuals eagerly await a single helicopter
ticket for destinations such as Car Nicobar, Campbell Bay, and Little Andaman.
Unfortunately, the process is marred by the frequent flying of government
officials, who tend to prioritize their own needs at the last moment of ticket
confirmation, often sidelining the general public, alleges some people.
Ordinarily, people opt
for ship or boat travel unless they face emergencies or specific needs that
warrant helicopter transportation, as the former is more economically viable
for them. Consequently, the frequency of general public travelers using
helicopters is relatively low.
It is imperative to enhance helicopter services in these islands, not only catering to the needs of government officials but also ensuring improved air connectivity for the benefit of islanders and tourists alike.
