United Offers Newark Flyers Ultimate Status Perk: $2000 Helicopter Transfer To New York City

Michael Goldstein

A Sikorsky S76 helicopter carrying the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh arrives in Portsmouth. Does the thought of spending an extra minute at Newark Airport, let alone suffering through traffic-choked turnpikes and tunnels into New York (let alone taking the train) give you a feeling of dread? A helicopter will whisk you from Newark Liberty Airport to one of three helipads in Manhattan (East 34th, West 30th and Wall Street) in what’s billed as just ten minutes.
