Uber, the global company, has announced its intention to launch a new Transprt service, which may seem an expensive way to avoid traffic in the city, but for those looking for the fastest route they are the best.
The company confirmed that it is preparing to provide helicopter transport services from John F. Kennedy Airport to central Manhattan through the "Uber Copter" service and is preparing to launch its first flights within weeks, according to the British Daily Mail.
The flights, which last about 8 minutes, will begin on July 9 with a cost of between $ 200 and $ 225 per person, including land transportation in the city and the airport.
Ober said the Copter service would take passengers between John F. Kennedy Airport in New York and Manhattan Airport.
Reports of Ober's ambitions to overtake city streets have been confirmed by coordinated airlift efforts through his new Uber Elevate team.
The new flights help Ober to collect data to provide a wide range of air transport in the coming years, company officials said.
Ober promotes this as an "easy" solution that includes all the means of transportation that can be booked on its smartphone application.
Uber has already announced air transport plans by 2023 between suburbs and cities, possibly within cities in the United States and other countries, and working with partners to develop "plane cars" or small electric aircraft with takeoff and landing capacity.
