BLADE recently announced they’ll be offering continuous helicopter flights between BLADE Lounge West and John F. Kennedy Int’l. Airport (“JFK”) every weekday between 7am to 7pm in both directions. Looking at the schedule it seems that they have between 1-2 flights each hour throughout the day.
As an update, they’ve now expanded their continuous service from Manhattan to both LaGuardia and Newark.
BLADE offers continuous service between the routes below for $195/seat.
• West 30th to/from JFK
• East 34th to/from Newark
• Downtown (Wall St.) to/from LGA
Blade explains the added service as follows:
BLADE offers continuous service between all three Manhattan BLADE Lounges and JFK, Newark, and LaGuardia airports for $195/seat. Ground transportation between airport helipads and all commercial airline terminals is included.
Click Book Now below and select your desired curbside arrival time (for BLADE to the airport) or commercial flight arrival time (for BLADE from the airport) and an itinerary will be created for you.
The one caveat with BLADE is the luggage allowance is quite stingy. You’re only allowed one 25lb carry-on bag per person, so if you were hoping to bring a backpack and a rollaboard, you’d be over the baggage constraints.
