Until the end of
October Delta is offering economy passengers one-way helicopter transfers between
New York JFK and Manhattan for just $45, instead of the normal $159.
The US carrier already
provides complimentary one-way helicopter transfers through US Helicopters, for business class
passengers travelling to or from JFK. But over the next month or so domestic
and international economy passengers can take advantage of a discounted rate on
transfers between the airport and heliports in midtown and downtown Manhattan.
The US$49 one-way
offer (plus taxes) represents a US$110 saving on the usual fare, and is valid
for tickets purchased on a DL code on B, M or H fares,
for domestic and international flights originating or terminating at the
heliports via JFK. Tickets must be purchased before October 31, 2008 for
travel by the same date.
