Tata Helipad in South Bombay

The Tatas have inaugurated the first helipad in South Bombay. This is on top of the Tata Wellington Mews which is now a luxury hotel.


The Tatas have become the first corporate house in Mumbai to have a helipad in Colaba. Their helipad atop Taj Wellington Mews — a luxury apartment hotel in Colaba — is now functional.

Over the last weekend, two trial landings were conducted in the presence of Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA)-appointed inspectors and sources said that they gave the green signal.

For a city of millions and with jet setters and high flyers galore, the city have very few public heliports.

The only other helipads in Mumbai are at the Mahalaxmi racecourse (open to the public), the Raj Bhavan (for the governor and heads of state) and at INS Kunjali, Colaba (used for defence purposes only). The helipad atop the Essar building in Mahalaxmi is defunct.
