Arriving in Style: US Helicopter, New York, NY

Want to start your vacation in style? Shiny black town cars and stretch limos are so yesterday. Literally. Starting today, US Helicopter, a company, based in Bridgeport, Conn, will offer hourly service, 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., from the Downtown Manhattan Heliport (6 East River Piers), and East 34th Street Heliport (499 East. 34th Street & F.D.R. Drive) to the American Airlines Terminal at John F. Kennedy International Airport and LaGuardia Airport.

Don’t whip out the iPod or crack the new Jackie Collins novel. The shuttle service arrives at the airport in approximately six to eight minutes. You’re arriving in style and that means in comfort and a timely fashion. But luxury and style has its price. A one-way fare is $144, and $292 round-trip, including all taxes.

The shuttle runs daily Monday thru Friday and doesn’t operate on weekends or holidays. For flight information, schedules, reservations, and locations, visit
