Blade Launches Seasonal Hamptons Pass

Its helicopter service lets New Yorkers skip the traffic and get to the beach in a flash.

Blade Air Mobility is offering a $37,500 seasonal “180” pass for flights between New York City and the Hamptons this summer in a Sikorsky S-76C+ (or newer) helicopter for a flat rate of $4,750 per flight plus 7.5 percent federal excise tax.

The deal runs from May 25 to September 4 for service to/from the Southhampton Heliport (K87N), East Hampton Airport (KHTO), Montauk Airport (KMTP), Quogue/Westhampton Airport (KFOK), and New York City heliports, where customers will have access to Blade lounges. An extra charge applies for flights into and out of Montauk. There are no peak or blackout dates.

A BJT writer reached his destination in just 15 minutes, thanks to a Blade urban air mobility shuttle flight in a helicopter.

Passengers can book flights with as little as 20 minutes' notice and callout service is available 24/7 with three hours’ notice. The deal applies to charter flights only. The pass holder must be aboard and crowdsourcing is not permitted. Assuming eight passengers, the pretax per-seat cost is about $593.

Pass holders also will qualify for preferred rates to any of Blade’s non-Hamptons destinations. Blade operates all helicopters with two pilots and the company reserves the right to substitute a comparable cabin-class twin helicopter in the case of mechanical or other covered conditions. Blade’s non-pass service to the Hamptons—using Cessna 208s on amphibious floats or Bell 407 single-engine helicopters—typically runs $1,025 per seat plus taxes and fees.
