Seoul will launch a Hangang River helicopter tour program Wednesday to offer tourists a bird’s eye view of the city, officials said.
Four helicopter routes will be available, all departing from Jamsil heliport in southeast Seoul.
The Jamsil and Korea World Trade Center route will offer views of the Gangnam area, while the Yeuido and Gwangnaru courses will give opportunities to see the city center and eastern areas, respectively.
The rides will take around 5 to 15 minutes and prices will vary from 55,000 won ($46) to 200,000 won, depending on the route.
Blue Airlines, a Korean tourist flight company, will be in charge of operating the four-seat Robinson’s R-44 helicopters and managing the business.
