They advertise it as follows: FAST CLASS by Copterline is the fastest, most efficient way to travel between Helsinki and Tallinn - from city center to city center in 18 minutes. Ten scheduled flights each workday put you above the inconveniences of ...

I did a long distance drive about ten years ago via the I-40, and decided to check out the Canyon so long as I was passing by. I switched to State Route 64, which took me directly to Grand Canyon National Park Airport (GCN), near the South Rim. There are 2 or 3 companies there selling helicopter flights over the canyon. There are no special documents or ...

In the past there was such a service in New York. I was booked on it once to get to Newark from LaGuardia and once between JFK and LaGuardia. Both times the weather was "bad" - helicopters set a really low bar for "bad" - and I had to make the connection on the ground. I am not sure if the service still runs but New York, with lots of airports and lots of ...

Yes, there are many different helicopter tours of the Grand Canyon. Most are out of Las Vegas. You can estimate the cost to be $300 USD or more per person. Here's a sample of the view when flying to the Grand Canyon from Las Vegas: As a bonus, you also get to see the Hoover Dam and the Strip from a different angle.

When I was in Vancouver earlier this month, I noted it was possible to do a flight from either Vancouver Harbour, or indeed Vancouver International Airport to Victoria, with Helijet. So it's a viable connection there, if pricey - a quick search for a flight next month revealed around $290 one way...

Sky Shuttle flies between Hong Kong and Macau every 30 minutes from 9 AM to 11 PM, seven days a week. Flights take 15 minutes. At HK$3700 (~US$475) a pop, it's not exactly cheap though, especially given that ferries cover the same distance in an hour and cost around a twentieth of the price!

Wikitravel's Grand Canyon page mentions two companies: Airplane and helicopter tours are offered by providers outside of the south rim in Tusayan at the Grand Canyon Airport, and also from Las Vegas. Scenic flights are no longer allowed to fly below the rim within the national park. However, some helicopter flights land on the Havasupai and Hualapai Indian ...

I had a quick look at the "Grand Canyon Tour" website mentioned above, and it says the tour is going to the West Rim. I'm pretty sure the scenery is similar, but the usual Grand Canyon pictures you see in books and in posters are taken from the South Rim, near Grand Canyon Village - and that is ~150miles away from Las Vegas. Just saying this because ...

Pity that I only learned about this service, AFTER returning from Morocco :( There is a regular helicopter service between Europe and Africa. INAER offers regular services between Malaga/Algeciras and Ceuta, and that already for 12 years. I even found two youtube films this one and this one. The service seems to connect with flights arriving at Malaga ...

Helicopter rides aren't available between the islands. Since the guy there doesn't really speak English, I didn't understand whether it was because it was off season or it just doesn't fly anymore. (I did see the helicopter a few times while I was there, though.) Seaplane is available for tourists and it costs 4100 rupees. You can only bring 5 kg of luggage ...

As far as I know, that's not a scheduled service but rather a charter service. There are no private airline service in Andaman and Nicobar Islands, and ones which are are operated by government-owned companies such as Air India. In case of the helicopters, it is operated by Pawan Hans and according to their site, it's a charter service. This means that ...
