The most anticipated move came after a very long and tiring wait, and this goes on for about 3-4 hours. It could have been a much more productive day if it were not for the daily grind we call the Metro traffic. What usually takes me an hour of travel has now been doubled and in some insanely long and busy days, tripled! A full and exhausting day at work makes you want to get home pronto! Imagine being on the road for hours, and it’s already 9 o’clock in the evening, you’re sandwiched by 2 enormous buses in Cubao, Edsa and you start thinking, “I wish I could take a helicopter going home! ” Well, GrabHeli just answered your prayers!
In an exclusive partnership with PhilJets, Grab, the Southeast Asia’s largest land transport brand, adds GrabHeli to their growing product offerings. GrabHeli, which is in its beta stage, will be tested for three months. PhilJets, a startup in itself, is aligned with the goals of Grab in innovating and providing transport solutions to the country. GrabHeli, a pre-booking helicopter experience is the company’s latest innovation. Be a GrabHeli beta tester! For Php 3,888 per person, anyone registered with GrabPay can fly around Manila in an aerial tour of Makati, BGC and Pasay. Unique GrabCar promo codes will be given to GrabHeli passengers to take them to or from PhilJets’ helipad in Manila Domestic Airport.
Luxury is now within reach. Booking and riding a helicopter used to cost tens of thousands of pesos, but through the partnership with PhilJets, it’s now possible! Just buy a minimum of one seat on a helicopter and you’ re good to go! And yes, if you want to impress, it’s not such a bad idea to get two seats for you and your date. Not a bad idea at all!
Pre-booking a GrabHeli will be available weekly from Saturdays to Wednesdays through the GrabTaxi app with fixed flight schedules during Fridays and Saturdays at 4pm.
