Pawan Hans conducts Jammu to Doda trial run chopper service

Pawan Hans conducts Jammu to Doda trial run chopper service

Jammu, Oct 7 (UNI) In view of the increasing mobility of people and frequent traffic jams on the Jammu-Srinagar Highway, the government has finally given its go ahead to the running of regular chopper service from Jammu to Doda and vice-versa. The trial run of chopper service was conducted on Friday by the Pawan Hans Private Ltd. The run was received at Doda by the Deputy Commissioner Bhawani Rakwal, SSP Mohammad Sahbir and other senior officers stationed at Doda. However, the service provider company has reportedly asked the district administration to clear the area around the landing strip of tall trees and a mobile tower which may obstruct the safe landing of the flying machine. Mr Rakwal said the area around the landing strip will be cleared sooner hoping that the regular chopper service will start operation within a week. In addition to Jammu-Doda route, the chopper will also fly to different areas of Doda district, including Bhaderwah, MLA Doda Shakti Parihar said. "The introduction of regular chopper service will be of great use for patients and accident victims who are ferried to Jammu by road which sometimes proves deleterious to the life of the ailing and accident victims," said the MLA.
