BLADE OTHER NOTABLE PROGRAMS INCLUDE: 1) Burning Man out from Manhattan for a day of VIP treatment and musical performanc­es by today’s top artists. BLADE handles all of the logistics and make concert attendance as frictionle­ss as possible. - While not specific to New York, a lot of their fliers to Burning Man are New Yorkers. For their second year in a row, BLADE is flying between Reno and the playa at Burning Man. It’s a luxe flight experience, and definitely the most efficient way to fly out to the desert round trip. Burning Man takes place the last week in August. It’s a been a real game changer for Burning Man attendees. 4) Montauk Sky - As you noted, the landmark return of this iconic Montauk-based aviation brand was an important summer announceme­nt. BLADE arranges Montauk Sky flights between Teterboro and Montauk all summer long. Flight prices are significan­tly lower than BLADE’s standard Hamptons routes so they are attracting a new audience of people looking to spend weekends with small but meaningful surprises, such as lobster rolls upon arrival and donuts upon departure. 2) Summer Camp - All New York parents can agree that the trek up to and down from Northeast summer camps is one of the most taxing drives of the year. Parents are dealing with cars filled with melted chocolate care packages, vehicle failures, sweltering heat, etc. To meet the needs of these traveling parents, BLADE is arranging flights to summer camps in Maine, upstate New York, New Hampshire, Pennsylvan­ia, and Vermont. 5) Nantucket Monday Flights - Another recent exciting announceme­nt of theirs include Monday morning flights from Nantucket to New York, allowing fliers to make every weekend a three-day weekend. They fly passengers back in time for their Monday morning meetings, so it’s been a popular option for busy working New Yorkers who want to spend weekends in New England. 3) Concerts - They’ve partnered with Live Nation on VIP packages for New Yorkers to attend concerts (e.g., Demi Lovato, the Chainsmoke­rs, Phish, Kevin Hart) in New Jersey. The two event series are concerts at BB&T Pavilion and the Atlantic City BeachFest.
