Uber Takes Flight
Posted On Jan 19, 2016
Your favorite car service just got even cooler. Uber will be offering helicopter rides to and from your favorite festivals: Coachella, Bonaroo, Cannes Film Festival, The Grand Prix and many more.
This weekend Uber is partnering with aircraft manufacturer Airbus, that will offer Sundance Film Festival attendees the ability to hail a helicopter from the Uber app. The rides will be available to anyone in the area, going to and from the Salt Lake City Airport and the Sundance landing pad in Park City.
The 15-minute scenic ride will cost $200 per person during the day and $300 at night, and also include a car service to and from the helicopter pads – so worth it.
This seems to be the new Uber trend- seeking out big national events and offering their unique services when we are in need of them most. A couple month’s ago at Art Basel Miami, UberBOAT provided art attendees boat rides across the Bay from Miami Beach to the art district.
Uber is the Kanye West of the transportation game- highly inventive and ahead of our time. Keep up the good work Uber!
