Uber Is Launching A Helicopter Service For Cannes 2015; Signs Partnership Agreement With Hélipass

PictureUber launches ‘hail’, a helicopter service for the  Cannes Film Festival allowing celebrities to easily commute to and from the film festival in only 7 minutes. Frédéric Aguettant, President of Hélipass, said customers will be able to reserve the chopper service for 160 Euros directly through the Uber app and be airborne within 15 minutes. PictureUber in the past has dabbled in aviation with its ‘Uberchopper’ service, which offered chopper rides around Lisbon, for 137 euros. Additionally, the firm also teamed up with Epic helicopters offering customers rides back and forth between the Coachella Music Festival.
Uber hopes that by offering the helicopter service, it will ease the pressure on Cannes which is expected to have 125,000 people attending the festival this year.
