Uber offers helicopter rides
Uber now offering helicopter rides in Sao Paulo.
For commuters who imagine soaring above Sao Paulo’s notorious traffic jams, ride-hailing app Uber is offering to make that daydream a reality, starting at around $20.
Brazil’s biggest city on Monday became the first in the world where Uber Technologies Inc [UBER.UL] offers on-demand chopper rides between airports, hotels and convention centers.
With more than 400 aircraft and nearly as many helipads, Sao Paulo has a helicopter fleet that rivals those of New York and Tokyo, but commuting by air remains an option mostly for millionaires. – Yahoo
