A New Way to Arrive in Style in the Hamptons: Gotham Air

New, 22 comments

Gotham Air, which introduced six-minute flights from Manhattan to JFK and Newark in January, is expanding to the Hamptons starting Thursday, May 21 (Memorial Day weekend). Destinations include Southampton, East Hampton and Montauk, with fares starting at $525 for Southampton, $575 for East Hampton, and $625 to Montauk. You'll be able to choose a seat from a shared charter flight or request a new crowdsourced flight if that doesn't work for you, online or via their app. Flights will be on Bell 407GX helicopters, which Gotham Air says are "equipped with the most advanced noise reduction technology… to preserve the peaceful tranquility of the beach towns." (We looked that up. Apparently the pilot can switch to "quiet cruise" mode which reduces rotor speed to 90%, which saves about 3dBs.)
