Uber is offering helicopter flights

If you are in Los Angeles over the next few weeks, tapping on Uber will whistle up more than a cab. The company that shook up the world’s taxi industry is offering helicopter flights as it steps up a flirtation with the aviation business. Uber has struck a deal with Blade, an app-based aviation group backed by some of the biggest names in media, selling helicopter flights from Los Angeles to Palm Springs to shuttle passengers to the Coachella music festival, which runs for a month from tomorrow… The alliance with Blade comes as Uber expands into new markets. It will launch its food delivery service in Paris, Melbourne and half a dozen US cities in the coming weeks. The service is already available in Toronto and Los Angeles.
