Air taxi facility in Bihar and Jharkhand

Spirit Air is starting an Air Taxi service in Bihar and Jharkhand. The cities that will be connected by the Air Taxi service are are Raxaul, Darbhanga, Muzaffarpur, Valmiki Nagar, Muzaffarpur, Purnia, Bhagalpur, Gaya and Motihari in Bihar. In case of Jharkhand, the air taxi service from Ranchi would be available for Chaibasa, Bokaro, Jamshedpur, Daltonganj, Hazaribag, Giridih and Sindri.

This would be an interesting service and improvement in infrastructure where a 3 seater (besides the pilot) aircraft is being introduced. One more additional piece of infrastructure for industry bigwigs that eases the travel in Bihar and Jharkhand.

I am however skeptical at the business model of introducing an aircraft which would cost Rs. 20,000 per hour to charter? Are there many takers already for this service in Bihar?

More details can be found in the Times of India article Bihar, Jharkhand to have air taxi facility soon
