New Gotham Air $99 helicopter between Manhattan and JFK/EWR
Looks like a new helicopter company is just around the corner from New York City. The Gotham Air seems to want to be the over equal to the helicopter transfer in New York, as it essentially enables helicopter flights through an ally with Helicopter Flight Services, which has a helicopter pool.
It is not a directly owned airline, but provides technological and information support to enable customers to obtain FAA and DOT certificated airline charters, which provide operative controls over all flight operations. The Gotham Airport will provide six minutes flight from three Manhattan helipads to Kennedy and Newark Airports.
Initial user costs only $99 per trip, and then they bill $199-219 based on travel times. Whilst it may seem a little superfluous for a six-minute ride, they will be offering starters from Chef Thomas Keller's Bouchon bakery and beverages on afternoons.
They also have a bad-weather guarantee that if the helicopter cannot go due to strong wind or low cover of clouds, you will be taken from doors to doors in a Tesla S. My only worry is that it looks as if flying won't necessarily work if you don't have four people. Would you like to take off your own ticket at exactly the right moment?
Just take a plane and ask for your flying hours. Once 4 places have been purchased, the ticket will be valid. So, will they publish a "guaranteed" timetable and that is beyond that, or how else can they provide a dependable experience when the reservation of a seating depends on the reservation made by others?
That has the capability to work, I think, as they really only offer one gateway through which humans can comfortably and (relatively) cheaply make helicopter bookings between Manhattan and EEA/JFK.
