BLADE Airport Private Charters

5 minutes in the air and you are there.


Rushing to or from the airport?

  • Travel by helicopter between Manhattan and area commercial and private airports.
  • Flights are as little as 5 minutes in duration.
  • Charter your own flight between Manhattan and any of the area airports on your own time on a 6 seat helicopter. Shared pricing between $795 - $995.
  • Continuous by-the-seat service between all three Manhattan BLADE Lounges and John F. Kennedy (JFK), Newark (EWR), and LaGuardia (LGA) airports for $195.
  • Ground transportation is provided between your helicopter and connecting flight. Learn more in the FAQs below.    


Four Ways to Fly

  1. Charter your own private helicopter between $1,575 - $1,775–to or from an area airport–in just minutes notice.
  2. Charter your own helicopter to JFK or to another local area airport in advance for prices between $795 - $995. 24 hours notice is required, and blackout periods apply. Your unused seats will be available to other BLADE fliers.
  3. Reduce your Charter price by enabling Crowdsourcing–where BLADE sells your unused seats.
  4. Purchase a seat on an existing flight to an area airport for $195.


How it Works, from NYC to Commercial Airports:


Connecting with American Airlines at JFK?

Our partnership with AA provides the most seamless airport transfer. Just select American Airlines in the connections step and add the upgrade for $350.

A representative from American will meet you after your helicopter’s arrival, and transport you via Cadillac to their exclusive Flagship First Check-In for expedited TSA screening and Admirals Club access prior to your flight. If you are arriving, an American representative will be awaiting your flight’s landing and escort you via private Cadillac to your BLADE helicopter immediately upon your arrival. Five minutes later, you’ll land in the city.

What Fliers Say About Airport Service

Reviews from Apple's Appstore

Intuitive App

Great App use it all the time
I use this app to get home from the airport almost every other week. I recommend the Xcel or Agusta for day to day use but I love this app. It's like a limo uber of the sky.

Bounce lifesaver
Nothing beats getting from Manhattan to the airport in 5 minutes! Blade has been a lifesaver and I use it weekly. Thrilled to hear they’ve launched a new service to Miami and cant wait to try it out.

I booked a blade bounce and my helicopter was there in 20 minutes. 10/10 would fly again
