Where to report and what is the reporting time before the flight time?

If you are departing from Imphal, you need to report to the Manipur Heli Service counter which is located just side the arrival terminal in the Bir Tikendrajit Imphal International Airport. If you are departing from Jiribam, you will need to report at the Jiribam Helipad.

To reach Imphal airport, you need to come to Imphal first and ask any auto person to take you to Imphal airport. One thing to remember is that there is no Ola, or Uber services in Imphal. You should ask locals first about where you are and how to get to the airport at a reasonable price without getting ripped off.

To reach Jiribam Helipad, you need to come to the Jiribam bazaar or to the nearest auto stand depending on where you are. From there, you can try to find if someone is going to Helipad and share the fares, or else you have no option but to reserve the auto.

If you are coming from a far place by booking a cab, ask them if they can drop you at the helipad. This will be a much better option as it will save some bucks and the road is pretty bad, it is really bad.

You will need to report at least 2 hours before the departure time. However, you can reach at around 1:15-1:30 hour before the flight. But do not delay more than this. You will need to undergo the regular security check.

I recommend you to book at least 7 days before your journey starts and remind them every 3 days.

Once everything is ready, you will be picked up in a vehicle and drive towards the helicopter in the helipad.

How much baggage is allowed in the Imphal Jiribam (Jiribam Imphal) helicopter service?

Large luggage is not allowed. Most travel with a single backpack. I brought a small trolley and a small laptop bag. They looked and nodded ok to proceed.

What to do once you reach Jiribam or Imphal after the helicopter?

Once you reach Jiribam, you will need to catch an auto-rickshaw. Let me give you a pro tip: talk with fellow passengers and ask them if you can share the fare. Oftentimes, they will offer a lift if someone is coming to pick them up. The auto walas will charge you ranging from 400 to 600 to travel from helipad to Jiribam Bazaar. From the Jiribam bazaar, you can go wherever you want.

If you are reaching Imphal and you want to travel by sharing, just walk out of the airport to the main road. Once you reach there cross the road and wait for auto rickshaws and ask them if they are going to your place and if it is shared or reserved.

What are the things you need to know for the journey?

First things first, you need to make sure you are reminding them that you are definition going the journey. They go to a great extent that you are not someone who just wanted to go and opted for other means of transport and never informed them about it.

Second, the chances of your ride being canceled are high due to climate conditions. The authorities don’t take any risks and if there are any bad weather conditions, they will cancel your flight. For a refund, you have to talk to the counter again. They generally refund at the spot.

Even though the flight time is only about 30 mins, your total time including the prep time is around 3 hours.

If you are going on a one-time rare trip, request a windows seat. The scenery is mesmerizing and you will absolutely love it. I wasn’t in a window seat so couldn’t film it. If you have some, share it with me, I will post it here.

The way to and from the Jiribam helipad is horrible and you have to endure it.

Talk to fellow passengers to share the taxi and oftentimes, they may offer you a lift if s/he already managed a pickup.

If you are on a tight schedule and you can not afford a cancelation, make sure you plan your plan B.

You will get noise-canceling headphones, they will considerably reduce your ear irritation during the flight.
