BLADE X Ocean Casino Resort

Ocean Casino Resort will be flying guests by helicopter to Atlantic City in style all summer long, as today it announced its partnership with global air mobility platform, BLADE, to offer nonstop air travel from New York City directly to Ocean’s distinctive rooftop helipad.

Bill Callahan, General Manager for Ocean Casino Resort said: “We are pleased to be partnering with BLADE to launch Ocean’s customer-facing, by-the-seat helicopter service throughout the summer.

“Our customers have enjoyed privately chartered trips since we built our helipad last year, however adding a scheduled best-in-class travel experience provides yet another fantastic amenity to our award-winning beachfront resort.”

Guests can book seats on the 6-passenger helicopter beginning on Saturday, May 25, with additional flights currently scheduled every Saturday in July and August, wrapping up on Labor Day Weekend.

Roisin Branch, CMO of BLADE said: “This is a natural extension for BLADE to complement its Hamptons and Airport routes.

“We have seen a meaningful increase in charter requests from Manhattan to Atlantic City recently and we are excited to make the flights more accessible to a broader audience over the summer.”
