Delta Air Lines has launched a new partnership with BLADE, to offer helicopter service for those passengers arriving or departing from New York’s John F. Kennedy Airport beginning later this summer.
The BLADE locations in Manhattan include:
- Blade Lounge East 499 E. 34th St, New York, NY 10016
- Blade Lounge West 12th Ave and West 30th St, New York, NY 10010
- Blade Lounge Wall Street 6 E River Bikeway- Main Terminal, New York, NY 10004
We’ve reached out to Delta for more details and found out that all passengers flying into JFK can book a BLADE helicopter. When it comes to mileage earning, there is no extra mileage earning/MQMs on the BLADE service.
To take part of this, bookings can be made through the BLADE app and website and are available now.
Delta’s JFK customers can book an expedited, seamless experience that begins and ends at one of BLADE’s three Manhattan heliport lounges where they may relax in a full-service lounge prior to their five-minute flight. Upon touchdown, a member of Delta’s Elite Services team will welcome the customer, collect baggage and personally escort them from the helicopter via awaiting ground transportation to the departure terminal, expediting security clearance as they head to their departing aircraft. When it’s time for the Delta flight, the customer is escorted to their seat on board. Bookings are available via the BLADE app.
Delta customers arriving into JFK, including those on transcontinental service from Los Angeles and San Francisco and trans-Atlantic flights from London, can also enjoy a seamless helicopter transfer experience. Delta’s Elite Services will meet customers on the jet bridge as they disembark a Delta flight or immediately after they clear customs, reclaim baggage and whisk them directly to the door of a waiting helicopter for the five-minute flight to Manhattan.
If you are looking for a way to earn even more miles you should consider the offers from The Gold Delta SkyMiles® Credit Card, Delta Reserve Credit Card from American Express, or The Platinum Delta SkyMiles® Credit Card.
