Delta Enables Seamless Helicopter Transfers at JFK with BLADE
Integrated helicopter airport transfers for Delta customers is the latest in airline's ongoing investments in customer innovation
The fastest way to travel between Manhattan and New York's John F. Kennedy International Airport just became even easier for Delta customers. Delta will enable a fully integrated, streamlined airport transfer experience through an exclusive partnership with BLADE, a digitally powered aviation company that arranges on-demand helicopter service between its Manhattan heliport lounges and JFK.
Delta's JFK customers can book an expedited, seamless experience that begins and ends at one of BLADE's three Manhattan heliport lounges where they may relax in a full-service lounge prior to their five-minute flight. Upon touchdown, a member of Delta's Elite Services team will welcome the customer, collect baggage and personally escort them from the helicopter via awaiting ground transportation to the departure terminal, expediting security clearance as they head to their departing aircraft. When it's time for the Delta flight, the customer is escorted to their seat on board. Bookings are available via the BLADE app.
Delta customers arriving into JFK, including those on transcontinental service from Los Angeles and San Francisco and transatlantic flights, can also enjoy a seamless helicopter transfer experience. Delta's Elite Services will meet customers on the jet bridge as they disembark a Delta flight or immediately after they clear customs, reclaim baggage and whisk them directly to the door of a waiting helicopter for the five-minute flight to Manhattan.
The BLADE partnership is just one of many enhancements Delta is making to offer an innovative customer experience. It's part of a multi-billion-dollar investment that includes access to Wi-Fi on nearly all flights; chef-curated meals in Delta One; a seasonal wine program; an Alessi-designed collection of service products and tableware; and more.
