Booking a short flight used to require multiple phone calls, faxing your credit card, and a lot of headache. Now, startup BLADE has taken all the mess out of that process and made booking a helicopter available to the masses. A traveler can use the BLADE app to purchase a single seat on existing trips or create and crowdsource their own flight.
While BLADE started in Summer 2014 servicing routes between Manhattan and the resort area of the Hamptons, it quickly expanded to offer 20 minute on-demand helicopter charters between Manhattan and all area airports for as low as $895 for the entire aircraft.
If you want to travel in style and on your own schedule, this is a great on-demand option.
