What you can expect

This unique combination of a helicopter airport transfer and scenic NYC tour is the best way to start off your New York City visit! Treat yourself and your fellow travelers to unforgettable aerial views of The Big Apple while skipping all airport traffic below, flying in your climate controlled, private helicopter.

Inbound travelers to New York must pass customs and baggage claim first before meeting their driver for a private transfer to the helicopter terminal. Luggage that does not fit in the helicopter will be transported directly to the hotel.

Outbound travelers leaving New York meet the helicopter at the Manhattan heliport of their choice and fly to the airport where a private transfer is arranged to the airline. Luggage that does not fit in the helicopter will be transported directly to the airport.

Total flying time is approximately 20 minutes including a scenic 15-minute tour of major landmarks in Midtown, Empire State Building, Central Park and Statue of Liberty.

Helicopter airport transfers are available in either direction for the same price: from airport to city or from city to airport. Convenient private transfers between airline and helicopter terminals are included along with luggage transportation if necessary.
