Here’s good news for folks who jet-set around the globe to sign business deals without even wasting minutes. Travelers seeking the quickest way to get between Manhattan and Newark Liberty International Airport now have a new way to cross the Hudson River, as Continental Airlines and US Helicopter Corporation have launched eight-minute chopper service. This fast and easy option will help time-sensitive business travelers coming in and out of Manhattan. Moreover, the thrilling experience of arriving in Manhattan by helicopter flying over the city’s famous skyscrapers adds an extra element of excitement and glamour to the journey.
Customers traveling on return tickets qualify for complimentary fares for helicopter transfers in both directions between New York Liberty and Manhattan; those on one-way tickets qualify for a one-way transfer. While the fare is waived, customers are liable for applicable taxes. However, US Helicopter has a different baggage allowance policy than Continental.
