Starting June 18, helicopter services will commence from Jammu city to the Bhawan cave shrine of Mata Vaishno Devi in Trikuta hills, the Shri Mata Vaishno Devi Shrine Board (SMVDB) announced on Monday.

As part of its efforts to improve pilgrimage facilities, the Board will offer a package that includes battery car seva, priority darshan, prasad, and ropeway sevas.

''To provide better facilities, the Board has taken a decision to start helicopter services directly from Jammu to Bhawan from June 18,'' said SMVDB Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Anshul Garg. Devotees can book the chopper service through the SMVDB website, with all allied services included in the package.

Upon landing at the Panchhi helipad near the shrine, pilgrims will receive special darshan slips, 'prasad,' priority cable car tickets to the 'Bhairon temple,' and return battery car service to reach the helipad for their flight back to Jammu airport. Currently, helicopter services are available only between Katra and Sanjichhat.

Recognized as one of the most revered sites in Jammu and Kashmir, the Mata Vaishno Devi cave shrine attracts nearly one crore devotees annually.
