The BLADE Bounce service enables travelers to charter a helicopter with a guaranteed boarding time within 20 minutes of booking.

In April Magnises teamed up with Blade for an exclusive offer – a one-day getaway to East Hamptons. For only $150 roundtrip (which is a 90% discount), you were able to hop on a private BLADE helicopter and travel from NYC to East Hampton in only 40 minutes. Once there – they provided roundtrip transportation between the East Hampton Airport, town, and the beach. The take-off was at 12:30pm from the West 30th street Heliport and the return at 5:30pm. This offer really does sound awesome and we surely hope it wasn’t a one-time collaboration. Who wouldn’t want to escape the concrete jungle and trade it for sandy beaches in a matter of minutes and for only $150?
