BLADE launches private jet service between Manhattan, Miami

Flyblade, Inc. said it has launched BLADEone, a weekly, by-the-seat jet service between Manhattan, Miami, and Palm Beach.

The launch is BLADE´s first expansion into jet aviation as well as its first route outside of the northeast corridor.

BLADEone´s inaugural flight will depart from BLADE´s Manhattan flagship lounge on Thursday, December 3rd in time for Art Basel. Scheduled flights between Manhattan and Miami (and Palm Beach) will operate through spring 2016. All BLADEone flights are operated by JFI Jets.

BLADE has continued its alliance with Tamara Mellon, who, together with BLADE, designed a fresh interpretation of flight attendant uniforms for the BLADEone Customer Experience (“C/X”) cabin attendants. Passengers will dine on cuisine created by noted chef and restaurateur Todd English either on board or prior to departures from BLADE´s private Miami lounge.

On the inaugural flights, passengers will be treated to Jack Spade amenity kits for men and women, containing custom suede slippers by Del Toro, electric toothbrushes by innovative dental start-up Quip, products by all-natural oral care line Hello, EOS lip balms, and Shades Club sunglasses.

BLADE is a leading mobile application for aviation, enabling consumers to easily create flights or book seats for crowdsourced helicopter, seaplane and jet travel between the New York area and popular regional destinations. The company acts as an indirect air carrier for public charter flights from New York to Miami, with charter flights operated by JFI Jets or other qualified airlines.
