Blade Air Mobility has joined forces with Ocean Casino Resort to introduce direct helicopter flights from Manhattan to Atlantic City throughout the summer season.

The Blade Scheduled Helicopter Service – operating from Memorial Day Weekend to Labor Day – will transport Ocean Casino Resort guests directly to the resort's rooftop helipad in Atlantic City.

Passengers can secure seats for $695 each way, with flights commencing on 25 May and operating every Saturday and Sunday in July and August until Labor Day Weekend.

Roisin Branch, Blade CMO, stated: “This is a natural extension for Blade to complement its leisure and airport routes in the Northeast.

“We have seen a meaningful increase in charter requests from Manhattan to Atlantic City and are excited to make the flights accessible to a broader audience over the summer.”

Travellers can anticipate a 40-minute flight from Blade Lounge West in Manhattan to Ocean's newly constructed helipad atop the resort.

Additionally, every passenger booking a flight will receive a complimentary bottle of Moët Imperial champagne.

Bill Callahan, General Manager for Ocean, commented: “We are pleased to be partnering with Blade to launch Ocean’s by-the-seat helicopter service throughout the summer.

“Our customers have enjoyed privately chartered trips by Blade since we built our helipad last year, however, adding a best-in-class travel experience that allows for individual seat purchases provides yet another fantastic amenity to our award-winning beachfront resort.”

In related news, Ocean Casino Resort also partnered with Konami Gaming to introduce Synkros technology across the resort. The installation of Synkros is scheduled for completion by the summer of this year.
