US Helicopter gives free seats to Eos passengers

If you’re one of the few who have taken advantage of the new low-cost-business-carrier airlines that have recently become popular, take heed: earlier this week US Helicopter announced a partnership with Eos airlines where they provide free transfers from JFK airport into Manhattan.

It’s icing on the cake for those business travelers flying on the new carrier, boasting only 48 seats on 220 seat jet. Of course, you do have to pay for the approximate 3kUSD first-class airplane ticket first.

If you’re one of the majority of us lay travelers who don’t think that business class or helicopter transfers into the city are right for you, now might be the time to reconsider. With the emergence of several low cost business carriers across the pond (minus one last month), supply has increased and prices are starting to fall. The work and peace of mind that you may preserve flying in business class may well be worth the extra two grand that you have to spend on that ticket.

Besides, who doesn’t want to say they took the helicopter into Manhattan from JFK?
