What Flyers Say About Bounce
Reviews from Apple's Appstore
Great App use it all the time
I use this app to get home from the airport almost every other week. I recommend the xcell or Agusta for day to day use but I love this app. It's like a limo uber of the sky.
– June 2016 Passenger
Nothing beats getting from Manhattan to the airport in 5 minutes! Blade has been a lifesaver and I use it weekly. Thrilled to hear they’ve launched a new service to Miami and cant wait to try it out.
– December 2015 Passenger
I booked a blade bounce and my helicopter was there in 20 minutes. 10/10 would fly again

Connecting with Delta at JFK?
Be sure to try our Delta Special Escort service for a seamless connection. Just select Delta in the connections step and add the upgrade.
Safety is our top concern
BLADE works exclusively with Argus and Wyvern rated Operators.
After your commercial flight lands at the airport, you will be met by your airport provided ground transportation curbside at the arrivals terminal for a short drive to your helicopter.
Please schedule your Bounce at your flight arrival time and our Flier Relations Team will adjust your helicopter schedule to coincide with your estimated commercial flight arrival time while you are in flight.
We highly recommend that you utilize BLADE's Meet and Greet service to ensure a swift transfer to your helicopter. Commercial airport ground transportation is not under our control and, at times, can be subject to delays.
After your Bounce lands in Manhattan, feel free to stay at the BLADE Lounge for a drink. 🍸
Once your helicopter lands at the airport, an airport provided vehicle will be waiting to transport you to your departure terminal. BLADE provided (and operated) Meet and Greet service is also available at purchase. If you are arriving on Delta, please select the Delta option at booking to experience fully-integrated and seamless on-the-tarmac transfer to your commercial jet. You will go through an expedited TSA process after which you will board directly from the tarmac.
For non-Delta commercial flights, we suggest booking your helicopter departure time 20 minutes before you would like to arrive curbside at your airline terminal. For example, if your flight is departing JFK at 5:00pm, and you would like to get to the terminal at 4:00pm, schedule your Bounce for 3:40pm.
For those flying Delta and utilizing the Delta special escort service, you will be able to depart later, given the seamless nature of the service provided by the on-the-tarmac transportation.
When your jet arrives at a private airport, we will coordinate with your FBO, helicopter pilot, and jet pilot to ensure your jet taxis as close to your awaiting helicopter as possible. Please provide your FBO and tail number at checkout.
We will coordinate with your helicopter pilot and FBO to ensure your helicopter lands alongside your awaiting jet. Please provide your FBO and tail number at checkout.

Bounce is available 24/7/365. However, any Bounce scheduled between the hours of 8PM – 8AM will incur New York City pass-through fees due to heliport late operation and landing fees, and pilot fees. Fees vary based upon equipment and landing point. All fees will be confirmed with passenger prior to departure.
CHARTERS: In the event that you are late for your BLADE charter, there will be a charge of $250 per 10 minutes the helicopter is spinning, waiting past your scheduled departure time. These costs are derived from a combination of idle time, repositioning costs, and duty hours.
SCHEDULED FLIGHTS: No scheduled flights will be held past the time of departure.
