Blade Adds Helicopter Routes in Atlantic City, Monaco

Skip the traffic and get your weekend started early.

Blade Air Mobility announced two partnerships that will open up new travel routes for its customers.

The first, with Ocean Casino Resort, will fly guests by helicopter directly between Manhattan and Ocean’s dedicated rooftop helipad in Atlantic City, New Jersey, on weekends this summer. Seats for these flights run $695 each way. The flights will kick off beginning on Saturday and continue every Saturday and Sunday in July and August through Labor Day Weekend.

An Ocean team member will greet guests upon arrival with dedicated concierge service during their stay and a complimentary suite upgrade.

“This is a natural extension for Blade to complement its leisure and airport routes in the Northeast,” said Roisin Branch, chief marketing officer of Blade. “We have seen a meaningful increase in charter requests from Manhattan to Atlantic City and are excited to make the flights accessible to a broader audience over the summer.”

“We are pleased to be partnering with Blade to launch Ocean’s by-the-seat helicopter service throughout the summer,” said Bill Callahan, general manager for Ocean. “Our customers have enjoyed privately chartered trips by Blade since we built our helipad last year; however, adding a best-in-class travel experience that allows for individual seat purchases provides yet another fantastic amenity to our award-winning beachfront resort.”

Another partnership—with Emirates—will allow customers to travel between Dubai and Monaco on a single ticket seamlessly connecting Emirates flights at Nice International Airport to a Blade helicopter that will fly them to Monaco. Blade provides continuous helicopter flights between Nice and Monaco all year.

“We are delighted to offer Emirates passengers the ability to fly from Dubai into Monaco with a seamless connection from their Emirates flight directly to a Blade helicopter to Monaco,” said RĂ©mi Bouysset, CEO of Blade Europe. “They will enjoy the best views of the French Riviera while skipping an hour and a half of traffic. With the time they save, they will have plenty of time to enjoy our Monaco Blade Lounge upon their arrival.”

Adnan Kazim, Emirates’ deputy president and chief commercial officer, said, “We’re pleased to enhance our partnership with Blade and GO7 to offer our customers a seamless seven-minute helicopter flight between Nice and Monaco. Emirates has been serving Nice with world-class services for more than 30 years, and we look forward to raising the bar even higher with this seamless door-to-door travel experience. We remain committed to the French Riviera and look forward to continuing serving our customers better both in the air and on the ground.”
