1. Who is eligible for Uber Copter?
Uber Copter is currently available to select riders. If you're eligible, you will see Uber Copter in your Uber app when selecting a trip to or from JFK.
Uber Copter is currently only available on iOS., though we're looking to expand to other operating systems in the future.
2. How does Uber Copter work?
Flights are operated by our direct air carrier affiliate, HeliFlite. Uber is not an air carrier and does not operate flights. You can find out more about HeliFlite at www.heliflite.com.
Uber Copter is a multi-modal travel experience. When you book through the app, your trips to and from the heliport are included. Those trips are arranged through the Uber app and provided by drivers on the Uber platform.
Uber Copter is currently available Monday - Friday, 1-6pm EST and you can book up to five days in advance.
3. How much does Uber Copter cost?
The price of an Uber Copter trip can vary depending on demand for the service or ongoing promotions. Refer to your app for the most up-to-date prices.
Prices are indicated per person and agreed to up front.
When arranging a trip with Uber Copter, we will facilitate Uber rides for you, through the app, from your point of origin to the heliport, in addition to an Uber ride to your terminal after the Copter arrives at the heliport.
