"The online booking of helicopter tickets for Amarnath yatra -- 2014 will commence on March 17 at 10 A M," Chief Executive Officer, Shri Amarnath Shrine Board (SASB), Navin K Choudhary said here.
The SASB has made arrangements with Pawan Hans Limited and Global Vectra Helicorp Ltd for providing services on Neelgrath-Panjtarni-Neelgrath (Baltal) sector, he said.
The Board has also made arrangements with Himalayan Heli Pvt Ltd for services on the Pahalgam-Panjtarni-Pahalgam sector, Choudhary said.
