The helicopter landed at the nearest heliport, and then a car service takes you to the desired station. The entire journey is included in the price, comes at an affordable price of $225.
Only diamond and platinum members of the Uber reward system, who can use the service, are expected to launch early.
“Our plan is to eventually roll out Uber Copter to more Uber customers and to other cities, but we want to do it right. The main goal of this initial venture is to understand the operations behind aerial vehicles,” says Eric Allison of Uber Elevate.
The company said the short flight in about 30 minutes when ground transportation was included, would cost between $200 and $225 per person. Similar to Uber ride, flights will have dynamic prices determined by demand. Although not exactly cheap, saving time will undoubtedly attract tourists to the vehicle. The same trip can take from one hour to two hours by car or 50 to 75 minutes by train.
Eligible customers will be able to book a helicopter up to five days in advance for up to five people, including private ground transport at both ends. Flights take off from near Staten Island ferry and land at a heliport near Terminal 8, which will run from Monday to Friday during afternoon rush hours.
According to Times, Uber Copter will be run by HeliFlite, a Newark-based company that oversees a two-engine helicopter fleet and each will have two pilots. A minimum potential attachment point for some customers: Each passenger will only be allowed to have a personal bag and hand baggage weighing less than 40 pounds due to space and weight restrictions.
Wait and see if this service will be successful.
