The Department runs a courier service at highly subsidized rates for the general public residing in the Tangdhar and Gurez sectors, when the surface communication to and from these area get cut in winter months. Suffice to mention here that all flying commitments allotted to the department by the state government are completed well in time and in good form. Civil Aviation Department has endeavored to provide accident/incident free flying operation. Department has been instrumental in promoting and starting helicopter service to Shri Amarnath Ji cave in year 2004 which now is a regular feature looked after by SASB.
