Newark Liberty International Airport
United Airlines began offering in May a helicopter transport option to Newark Liberty International Airport from Manhattan. The service is carried out by Newark-based HeliFlite. The 10-minute service flight aims to bypass ground traffic.
Under United's Signature Service, the helicopter transport is offered to customers from three heliports in New York City — East 34th, West 30th and Wall Street. Prices start at $2,099 for one to three passengers.
HeliFlite's fleet comprises 10 Leonardo AW139s, four Bell 530s, four Sikorsky S-76s and a Bell 429. All are executive-class, twin-engine helicopters with two pilots.
