This week, Emirates has announced that it will be offering their first class passengers a taste of the A-list lifestyle with complimentary helicopter transport to the playground of the rich and famous, Monaco for their flights to Nice. The Emirates helicopter transport announcement comes amidst a busy week dealing with the electronics ban; Emirates has clearly kept its eye on improving and enhancing the service it offers its passengers.
Helicopter Transport Details
Emirates will be offering First class passengers a complimentary helicopter trip from Nice, France to Monaco. The move comes on the heels of Emirates upgrading the service from Dubai to Nice as of July 1, 2017, when the company will start operating the route with Airbus A380, instead of the current Boeing 777-300ER. Emirates has partnered with Monacair to provide the 6-minute helicopter ride from Nice Airport to Monaco. To complement the luxury experience, passengers will also be offered a chauffeur driven Limo service from Monaco’s Heliport to their final destination in the principality.
For those who are not traveling First class and still want a taste of the Emirates high life, you can enjoy the same Helicopter and Limousine service to Monaco for a fee; Emirates is pricing the service as follows:
- First Class, Complimentary
- Business Class, €79 per passenger
- Economy Class, €109 per passenger
In addition to the Chauffeur-drive experience that Emirates provides, this is another great step from Emirates in upping its game and cementing its reputation as a leader in the premium luxury market. Although the helicopter flight only takes 6 minutes, it can still save you some time, with normal drive times from Nice to Monaco being around 30-40 minutes. Overall in a difficult week, Emirates has once again stepped up and delivered.
