Racing to JFK airport from Manhattan: Helicopter vs subway | USA TODAY

Elite JetBlue frequent flyers get free helicopter rides to NYC airports. How much time can they save?

Any New Yorker knows it’s a schlep to go from Manhattan to John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) in Queens. Travelers can opt to take the subway, which can be crowded and unreliable. They can choose to risk the vagaries of traffic on the Van Wyck Expressway in a taxi or rideshare. Or they can even take advantage of Blade’s helicopter transfer service.

For JetBlue’s most loyal frequent flyers – those who achieve Mosaic+ status – that aerial option has new appeal. Last month, JetBlue announced a partnership with Blade through which Mosaic+ members will get complimentary helicopter flights from Manhattan to JFK and Newark Liberty International Airport in New Jersey. Seats on the choppers usually go for $195. Lower-tier frequent flyers on JetBlue will also qualify for discounts on their first Blade rides.
