Is there a way to make helicopter transfers affordable and convenient? The new option from La Compagnie and Monacair between Monaco and Nice might be the closest such thing yet.
Want to be treated extra special when flying? American Airlines’ newly expanded Five Star Select service adds Flagship Lounge Dining, private car transfers to the plane, and even Blade helicopter transfers between the airport and downtown locations. All for a price, of course.
