PHONE NUMBER

What are the phone numbers to the helicopter companies ?

As soon as all seats are requested and helicopter is full, the request is sent to all the helicopter companies that are offering helicopter tours on their websites in the region.  Then you will be notified of full helicopter and also informed with the phone number to the helicopter companies that have received the flight request.  The helicopter companies do not accept bookings of less the 5 passengers , (unless you pahy for 5 seats) . Furthermore, they do not make any effort to put different groups of passengers together  to fill up either .  The portal www.helikopter.flights  does exactly that !.
However, before the flight is full there is no reason for calling the helicopter companies since they do not have any information about your booking request.    Not until all 5 seat are booked.

CALENDAR

I cannot find any tours on the calendar ?

Only flights  that are NOT full are listed on the calendar. (5 passengers). When the flight is full, it is taken off the calendar and sent to the helicopter companies in the region.

There are no fixed times for tours. Only on order. The calendar  therefore does not show all flights that go, but only those that are waiting to be filled up to 5 passengers.
If you are less than 5 people, your order will be placed on the calendar with an indication of how many seats have been booked and how many are available.
Others can then sign up so that the flight request is sent to a helicopter company.

If you find a flight on the calendar that you are interested in, you can sign up to help fill up the helicopter.

The Calendar - How does it work for Tours and Gift Certificates

The calendar is for passengers that are waiting for the helicopter to fill up.    
Both sightseeing tours and Gift certificates have the option of purchase for single passengers.   This is much cheaper than buying for full helicopter.  When you enter a requested date for less passengers than the helicopter has seats, the flight is not sent to the helicopter companies in the region untill all seats are sold. In the meantime the booking request is listed on the calender so others can  find it and list themselves on the same date. You will be notified when the helicopter is full.  You may also register yourself on an alreday listed flight, so chances increases to fill up all seats.   When the flight is full, it is removed from the calnedar and the order is sent to a helicopter in the region.  Please note that Gift Certificates are  valid  on saturdays only.

If there are not enough passengers on a flight, a  new date must be entered.   The portal is an automatic self service program and there is no way for the program to know if a user is in the area for a limited time or is a tourist.  This is described in details in Terms & Conditions and it is not possible to completeca payment before these terms are read , understood and accepted by the buyer.

What happens if there are not enough passengers on any of the dates before the gift card expires ?
If you have entered the request for the desired date in accordance with the conditions, and there have not been enough passengers to fill a helicopter before the gift card expires, we can extend the validity period. The same applies if there has been no free capacity at the helicopter companies receiving the request if the helicopter was full.
Not enough passengers to fill all seats in the helicopter.

If you have ordered a helicopter tour for a smaller number of passengers than the helicopter has seats, you must share the trip with others. If there are not enough ipassengers, the assignment will not be sent to the helicopter companies in the region. Then a new date must be entered.

How can I receive reimbursement of Gift Certificates ?

Reimbursement of gift cards is described in the terms and conditions on our pages.
