When trying to make it to the airport in that legendary New York City traffic, your options are pretty limited. But now there’s a new option, provided you don’t mind blowing a few bucks – it’s Gotham Air, described as being like “Uber for helicopters.”
Gotham Air can get you from downtown to JFK in a reported six minutes, but let’s face it, it’s not just the speed and convenience that make this an awesome service. It’s also the fact that you can arrive at either JFK or Newark Liberty airports in New York City in a damn helicopter. There are some caveats, though – for one, each flight costs $219 (with a limited time introductory rate of $99 for first-time fliers). And for two, you can’t lift off unless there are at least three other riders with you, so your dreams of having a private chopper chauffeur will have to wait a little while longer.
But still, Gotham Air is an intriguing idea, especially if you live in New York City right now. You can watch a video below to see some more about how it works, and for more info head over to the Gotham Air site here.
