Sikkim Helicopter Service

Helicopter in Gangtok

A five-seater helicopter shuttles from Gangtok to Bagdogra Airport (₹3500, 40 minutes), departing at 11am and returning at 2.30pm.

Sometimes a second daily shuttle operates. It's handy for reaching Gangtok but nerve-racking for meeting a tight connection at Bagdogra since services can be cancelled at short notice (adverse weather, insufficient bookings etc). In Gangtok, STDC sells the tickets.
