Japanese operator AirX has set up a project in association with with Keikyu Corporation which will result in tourist flights by helicopter to a newly developed resort known as “Sky Resort Miura”. The venue on the Miura Peninsula is a popular get-away destination for Tokyo residents, but suffers from slow ground transport. The peninsula is in the south-east part of the Kanagawa Prefecture. This seaside town area has Sagami Bay to the west and Tokyo Bay to the east, and consists of five main towns – Kamakura, Yokosuka, Zushi, Miura, and Hayama.
Some route proving flights will be carried out in February.
On 13 February – A leisure-based day on the Miura Peninsula, such as aquariums, gourmet, and a sightseeing flight by helicopter
On 27-28 February – tour flight from Tokyo Heliport to the Miura Peninsula, stay at snow peak glamping Keikyu Kannonzaki (image below) and a boat cruise from Hayama Marina
No details have been provided on what helicopter type will be used, although available mockup imagery features a Robinson R44
