Technology and advancement has been making the life of the human beings easy to lead. Uber has already introduced many services world wide.

However the new one is really unique. Now the customers would be able to book a helicopter to reach the destination avoiding the traffic within a few minutes. Uber is all set to provide the service in the biggest city of Brazil, Sao Paulo.

Uber Makes It Possible:

Sao Paulo is the first city which is going to experience the helicopter ride as public transport.

According a news report the helicopter service would be provided to the customer to reach the hotels, airports, and convention centres.

Already there are many high rises in the city which have helipads on the roof. Therefore it would not be any big problem to execute the helicopter service in Sao Paulo.

Uber has told that the test run would be going for a month or so. The cost has been fixed to $26 per person.

Although it is not much, some people would not be able to afford this service to reach just hotels or airport. The distance has also been fixed to 6 kilometers.

Therefore it is a little bit costly. On the other hand there are also some expensive rides to reach the airports which cost $105 and it takes one to two hours. If one considers this fact then the helicopter service is very cheap.

There would be some days when we go to market or office by the personal small two-seater planes and there would be dedicated parking lots.

It is the beginning my friends. Uber is not the first one to provide the helicopter service, but it can be said that it is the first public transport mode using helicopter. Would you like to experience it? Visit Sao Paulo and get your seat booked.
