BLADE Urban Air Mobility has expanded its helicopter transfer services to include LaGuardia Airport, New York City, and Newark Liberty International Airport, New Jersey, the company announced on 8 May.

The new routes are between LaGuardia and Manhattan’s Downtown/Wall Street Heliport, as well as Newark and BLADE Lounge East (East 34th Street Heliport). The JFK service will continue to and from BLADE Lounge West (West 30th Street Heliport) across from Hudson Yards.

BLADE’s airport service uses Bell 206L-4 helicopters.

Rob Wiesenthal, CEO of BLADE, said: ‘Since expanding our continuous flight service between Manhattan and JFK, we are seeing faster than expected adoption by people choosing to fly to the airport rather than driving. It has become immediately apparent that fliers want the flexibility to fly between Manhattan and, not only JFK, but all area airports.’

The company launched helicopter transports from Manhattan to JFK Airport in March 2019.
