BLADE Urban Air Mobility
BLADE Urban Air Mobility is a technology-powered, short-distance aviation company committed to reducing travel friction by enabling cost-effective air transportation alternatives to some of the most congested ground routes in the U.S. and abroad.
No company flies more people in and out of city centers than BLADE.
With BLADE, you can book by the seat on scheduled flights throughout the Northeast and West Coast or charter or crowdsource a flight anywhere in the world. From the moment you book, you’ll experience a level of precision, culture of accommodation and on-the-ground experience that is unmatched. Whether you’re traveling by helicopter, seaplane or jet, BLADE is the most time-efficient, cost-effective and inspiring way to mitigate urban travel pain points that have increasingly become a significant part of our daily lives.
The Future of Urban Air Mobility
Our long-term goal is to make aviation more accessible by preparing for the adoption of eVTOL (Electric Vertical Take Off and Landing) quiet, carbon-neutral and cost-effective aircraft that are currently being developed by our investors and partners.
BLADE is an integral part of this urban mobility revolution and we invite you to fly the future today.
One of our primary missions is to help passengers safely and reliably experience new ways of traveling with the highest respect for and least impact on our environment. Our business model enables people to share aircraft instead of flying alone, thus making air travel more fuel efficient in many instances than riding in an SUV alone.
That being said, we’re always looking to do more, which is why we’ve taken important steps in reducing our carbon footprint, including achieving carbon neutrality in 2019. By purchasing carbon offsets in the New York area, we’re able to balance out our emissions.
Our BLADE MediMobility group partners with local hospitals to provide cost-effective, rapid movement of organs and transplant teams to maximize success rates. One of the most important initiatives is our partnership with NYU Langone Health, through which we arrange on-demand helicopter missions for NYU transplant teams and donor organs.
