Seats will cost $695 each way.

Blade Air Mobility has announced a deal with Ocean Casino Resort that will see it fly Ocean’s guests via helicopter between Manhattan and Ocean’s rooftop helipad. 

Seats will cost $695 each way beginning on Saturday May 25, running every Saturday and Sunday in July and August through Labor Day Weekend. 

The flight itself will last about 40 minutes starting from Blade Lounge West in Manhattan finishing on the new helipad located on the roof of the Ocean, being met by a team member, with dedicated concierge service for passengers, as well as a complimentary suite upgrade. 

Moët & Chandon is the official champagne partner for this launch and every passenger who books a flight will receive a complimentary bottle of Moët & Chandon Imperial champagne. 

Blade CMO Roisin Branch said: “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.” 

Ocean General Manager Bill Callahan added: “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.” 

This news follows on from February when Ocean teamed up with Michael Schulson, a celebrated chef and restauranter, adding two new fine-casual concepts to the resort.

He fields a variety of questions - not shying away from any of them - on why 'myths' about casinos and a fear of the unknown should be dispelled, as well as acknowledging the strength of rival bids and discussing opposition to the project.
