The new helicopter transportation service, Blade, partnered with Delta to help flyers avoid the chaos of the JFK airport and the drive to Manhattan

Blade, an application based helicopter transportation service that functions like Uber, has partnered with Delta Airlines to help passengers avoid the chaos at New York City's JFK airport. The service brings luggage directly to passengers after a flight and drives them to a waiting helicopter that flies them to Manhattan.

When a customer's Delta flight has landed, Delta's Elite Services team members brings their luggage to their Blade car where the driver takes the passengers to their helicopter. The helicopter takes them to one of three lounges Blade has set up in Manhattan, with the flight taking less than 10 minutes.

It costs $1,000 to book the helicopter and $250 to include Delta's Elite Services to help with the luggage.
