Uber Helitcopter Landing at Cannes Film Festival

Some very chic news is landing just in time for Cannes Film Festival. Uber will exclusively partner with Hélipass offering flight reservations between Nice-Côte d’Azur Airport and Cannes for just 160 euros. Not bad considering the Euro is at a recent low for this years film festival. 

Uber helicopter has surfaced before getting the impatient New Yorkers out to the Hamptons from NYC. While Helicopter transit is common between the chic towns along the  South of France, Uber will be the first of its kind service for France. They plan to test it out throughout the Cannes Film Festival between May 13-24. Will I see this as an Uber option my next summer in St. Tropez? Time will tell. 

A new icon linking to the service will appear in Uber users’ apps starting the first day of the Cannes Film Festival. The new flight feature will provide a seat in a helicopter departing 15 minutes later. The 7 minute travel time using Uber Helicopter will allow the user to avoid the congestion and potential hours of traffic. C’est Chic.
