Uber passengers can pick up on the roof of their building at the helicopter site, and the drive lasts eight minutes and costs 1,318 and 1 650 kunas in one direction. The application will extend this service to the rest of the country, and in 2020, they plan to have flights and around the world, Daily Mail reports.
However, Uber flights are only available to the best users of this application, and more specifically to Platinum and Diamond members, those who have spent more than 16,000 kuna on Uber Pool, Uber Eats or 5,500 kunas at Uber x. A helicopter can drive up to five people, and passengers can carry with them a hand luggage and a laptop bag. Although the idea sounds great, the Mayor of New York is not thrilled. He is worried about the possibility of an air accident and would like to stop any kind of transport.
Today, this service exists in Dallas, Los Angeles and Melbourne, and now in Manhattan. Uber is working to ensure that in the future, by the end of 2023, Uber Air is spread across the United States, connecting the cities and suburbs, and working to offer more types of air vehicles.
