JUST in time for Brexit, a scheduled helicopter flight between Gibraltar and Malaga airports, has been launched by Spanish company Hélity and will commence operations at the beginning of November with one-way flights costing in the region of €140.
Hélity currently operates regular flights between Ceuta and Malaga, as well as Ceuta and Algeciras, and will now extend the connection between Malaga and Gibraltar with an estimated flight time of 25 minutes and a capacity to transport 15 passengers.
The service will be operated by an Agusta Westland 139 helicopter which is a medium size twin-engined helicopter that is the leader in world oil rig operations due to its design characteristics, which ensure the highest performance and maximum safety.
These helicopters enjoy a spacious comfortable and quiet cabin with air-conditioning. Other important features of this aircraft are a crew made up of a commander and a co-pilot, a cruising speed of 250 km/h, twin-engines and a three-hour flight-range.
For those worried about the close proximity of other passengers because of Covid-19 risk, the airflow inside the helicopter is renewed totally and constantly from the outside of the cabin in less than a minute.
