Cars, buses are over! So Uber has decided to move over to the next big thing – Helicopters! Yes you heard right. The company is in talks with Airbus to provide on-demand helicopter rides just like its car rides.
Tom Enders, CEO of Airbus said, “It’s a pilot project, we’ll see where it goes—but it’s pretty exciting.”
This could prove to be the next big thing for Uber as it might put its valuation at $62.5 billion! Before this, Uber has also experimented with boats, food and package deliveries and so on.
The partnership was confirmed by an Uber Spokesperson who also said that the trial run will take place at the Sundance film festival. However, Uber has not revealed the pricing yet.
Uber previously had offered UberChopper rides which costed $400 per person.
Another startup Blade is working on a similar concept in US and has raised $6 million.
