Limited time offer - purchase between April 14 and May 14 2009
NEW YORK, April 14 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- US Helicopter has announced a Spring Special Fare of just $99 each way for any scheduled flight between Manhattan and JFK or Newark Airports.
With many low fares being offered by US airlines right now US Helicopter makes getting to and from Manhattan easier by offering a limited time Spring Special Fare of $99 one way between its Manhattan heliports and JFK or Newark Airports.
The $99 fare is compatible with black car service and little more than what one would pay for a taxi. In addition to the low fare and the short 8 minute flight time, passengers can clear security at either Manhattan heliport and thru-check their bags if connecting to US Helicopter codeshare partners -- Continental Airlines at Newark and Delta at JFK. Travelers are in for a pleasant surprise as they fly over traffic -- rather than be faced with the unpredictable journey to JFK or Newark Airports.
US Helicopter Senior Vice President Donal McSullivan commented, "In addition to the great value we offer at $99, we also save time for our passengers and eliminate the stress associated with the uncertainty of the road trip to the airport." He continued, "Our 8 Minute Shuttle is ideal for the time sensitive traveler. Our partners Delta and Continental Airlines are able to offer their customers a convenient, comfortable and time-saving service."
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(ii), all at the heliport. They then board the luxury helicopters and enjoy an eight-minute flight, along with the spectacular sights of the Manhattan skyline and avoid long lines upon their arrival at the airport.
US Helicopter's frequently scheduled flights operate between 7:00 AM and 8:00 PM. For more information or to take advantage of this limited time offer, visit www.flyush.com or call the reservations office at 877-262-7676.
