Need to get to the airport fast? In case you missed it, Uber now offers a helicopter service from downtown Manhattan to JFK airport in just 8 minutes. 

For $200US, do you think it is worth the price?

 

 

Here’s what a typical trip looks like:

  1. Book your Uber Copter trip with the Uber app — you’ll see Copter as an option if your journey starts within the designated zone. This can be done up to five days in advance, or just 30 minutes before your flight.
  2. An Uber car will pick you up from your location and bring you to the Downtown Manhattan Heliport.
  3. At the heliport, you’ll check in and watch a 90-second safety video before boarding. “This process is intended to take as little time as possible as Uber Copter is meant to provide time savings for people to get between Lower Manhattan and JFK, and vice versa,” an Uber spokesperson told CNBC in an email.
  4. Embark on your eight-minute chopper ride to JFK airport, where you’ll land at a helipad near Terminal 8.
  5. There, an Uber car will take you to your departure terminal.

  • Does this $200 cover per ride or per person?? If you’re crunched for time and have the money, why are all these people whining? I’d do it in a heartbeat… especially if it’s a transportation/tax write off! Uber is always creative.

  • If you’re already in Manhattan, it would totally be worth it. The stress of riding to the airport in a car, all the traffic, and cost. The two hundred dollars isn’t much more. I would do it … bonus, you’d have great views.

  • Depending on the day and time you arrive and the way you choose to travel from JFK to NYC, the trip can take about 30-40 minutes or well over an hour.Apr 29, 2019.
    To catch up your schedule can sometimes be priceless, even by 20 minutes. I have been sweating in a traffic jam several times and twice missed a long haul flight due to traffic accident.
