Uber launches $612 helicopter service for Abu Dhabi F1

Fans going to the F1 this weekend will be able to skip the traffic between Dubai and Abu Dhabi and start the event in style with the launch of UberCHOPPER.

The app-based taxi service part-owned by Qatar has launched a special service in association with Alpha Tours, with the door-to-door service starting at AED2250 ($612) per
person.

Upon requesting
UberCHOPPER, a private driver will pick users up at their home and drive them to the
helipad at the Atlantis, The Palm hotel, where they will be flown directly to Yas Island. After a journey of less
than 30 minutes another luxury car will whisk them straight to the Yas Marina
Circuit for the race.

The service will
run hourly, Friday to Sunday, during the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix and full details are available by clicking here.
