Tripura: In a bid to add a twist to the festive season, Tripura Road Transport Corporation (TRTC) is offering helicopter rides to give the revellers an aerial view of the celebrations in the state. 

"We are offering the ride for three days on Saptami, Navami and Dashami and the duration of the ride will be for 25 minutes," TRTC chairman Deepak Majumder told reporters here Sunday.

However, even though the rides are available for three days, the daily tickets are limited and so are the seats. So, if you want to get on a chopper to celebrate, you better move fast. 

An eight-seater chopper has been allotted for the ride. Priced at Rs 1,700 per head, 16 tickets will be issued every day from the Krishnanagar bus depot from Monday.
