United are offering a new service to their high-paying customers – a chance to arrive in style at Newark Airport via a personal helicopter service from Manhattan.
According to Travel+Leisure the airline is offering the exclusive service to business-class passengers, who get to skip the NYC traffic on the 10 minute helicopter ride from United’s helicopter hub in downtown Manhattan direct to Newark International.
Of course the luxury of arriving via helicopter comes at a cost. Travel+Leisure are reporting the service comes with a fee of $2,099 for up to three passengers with an additional cost of $100 for up to six passengers.
