Uber is expanding into helicopter service from the month of July. The company will debut the Uber Copter service in New York City, offering rides between JFK airport and Lower Manhattan
Users will be able to book the service through the app but will have to book five days in advance. Uber Copter will offer eight-minute flights between the city and airports and will be priced between $200 and $225 per person.
Up to five people will be able to ride in the Uber Copter, which will be available between Monday and Friday during the afternoon rush hour. And similar to Uber rides, the helicopter service will have a price surge when the demand is high.
However, the service will only be available to users who are on the top two tiers of Uber’s loyalty program; Platinum and Diamond.
