If you're summer-ing in the Hamptons, there's a helicopter for that

If you're a Hamptons regular, there's a chance you're already familiar with Blade, the NYC-based, first-of-its-kind app where you can charter or book seats on a crowd-sourced helicopter, jet or seaplane right from your phone—all at a mere starting price of $600 for a short-distance trip.

Originally launched in 2014, the company now provides services to popular destinations ranging from the Hamptons and Fire Island in New York to Martha's Vineyard in Massachusetts and Miami and Palm Beach in Florida.

In New York City, travelers can depart from one of four Blade private terminals: Midtown East, Midtown West, East 23rd Street and by popular demand, a newly-unveiled Wall Street location (we're looking at you, finance bros). In a rush? Great news—you can now also have your car driven right up to the tarmac and board the chopper directly, for an additional $95.

Also new this year is by-the-seat helicopter and seaplane service along the Jersey Shore, including Seaside Heights, Long Beach Island and Atlantic City.

Download Blade here to get started.
