New York, NY --
Start off your New York City visit with this unique combination of a helicopter airport transfer and scenic NYC tour. Enjoy amazing aerial views of The Big Apple while skipping all airport traffic below, flying in your private helicopter from JFK, LaGuardia or Newark Airport to the Manhattan heliport of your choice. 

Inbound travelers to New York must pass immigration and baggage claim upon arrival then call the complimentary ground shuttle service to the helicopter terminal (5-10 minute drive). Private transfers are available for an additional fee, please indicate your preference at the time of booking.

Airport transfers normally 5-8 minutes long are extended with a scenic ~15-minute tour of major landmarks in Midtown, Empire State Building, Central Park and Statue of Liberty.
