Delta and US Helicopter have been partnered for a while providing connectivity between JFK airport and Manhattan’s two heliports. Initially they were just sharing terminal space. Then Delta added an tag-on helicopter transfer to full fare trans-Atlantic business tickets out of JFK. Now they’ve expanded it even more, adding a $45 fare for anyone flying a domestic trip on a full coach fare (Y/B/M fare classes). I cannot find all the details so I’m not 100% sure of any other conditions on the deal, but it seems like a good opportunity. Some of the Y fares are actually pretty cheap where there is competition with other carriers, and the $45 is the same as a cab fare.
The helicopter ride is a great way to get in and out of Manhattan. I wouldn’t pay the $159 on a regular basis, but at $45 it is a great opportunity and definitely worth trying if you otherwise qualify.
