US Helicopter Announces Its Annual Fall Fare Sale – $99
NEW YORK, Sept. 15 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- US Helicopter Corporation ("US Helicopter") announces its annual Fall Fare Sale. Now through October 17th, a one-way ticket on US Helicopter's eight-minute airport shuttle will cost only $99(1) (versus the traditional fare of $159). This special offer applies to all US Helicopter flights operating between Manhattan heliports and John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) or Newark Liberty International Airport (Newark Liberty).
"Last year, our Fall Fare Sale was a big success and many passengers based in the US as well as overseas have inquired about it for this year," says Jerry Murphy, chief executive officer and president of US Helicopter. He continued: "with New York traffic at its worst right now, the 8-Minute Shuttle provided by US Helicopter is the simple and affordable solution to the unpredictable traffic congestion associated with this vibrant city and our $99 fare is probably the best deal in New York."
Since its inception in March 2006, US Helicopter's scheduled service affords business travelers countless hours of saved time and a hassle free airport commute. Passengers check-in, receive their boarding pass, check baggage and clear TSA security screening through to their final destination(2) all at the heliport. They then board the luxury aircrafts and enjoy an eight-minute flight, along with the spectacular sites of the Manhattan skyline and avoiding long lines upon their arrival at the airport.
