HeliFlite announces 24/7 airport helicopter transfer services. Airport transfers are available to and from private area airports: Teterboro (TEB) and White Plains (HPN) as well as international hubs such as Newark (EWR), John F. Kennedy (JFK) and LaGuardia Airport (LGA). The flight time into any of the 3 New York City heliports is under 15 minutes.
HeliFlite operates within a 250-mile radius of New York City. The ability to travel directly into Manhattan, avoiding time-consuming car commutes to and from the airport, is a compelling advantage when time is at a premium. In the Northeast helicopters are undoubtedly the most efficient way to travel providing a distinct advantage with the ability to land at airports, helipads, golf courses and private estates. HeliFlite is the carrier of choice for clients traveling by private jet. The company’s operations personnel utilize software that enables HeliFlite to anticipate a client’s arrival, and ensure that a helicopter is available nearby. They will coordinate with flight departments, aircraft management companies or fractional providers.
