Bloomberg, Cornell Tech, and Tech:NYC invite you to join for the latest installment of the Cornell Tech @ Bloomberg series, featuring Rob Wiesenthal, co-founder and CEO of BLADEBLADE, in conversation with Scarlet Fu of Bloomberg Television.
Over the past decade, consumer access to transportation has become digital, mobile, and on-demand. Cars, shuttles, bicycles, and scooters can all be booked or rented simply by tapping on a screen. New York City-based BLADE takes this transformation of transit to new heights, literally, providing helicopter, private jet, and seaplane rides that anyone can easily book on their smartphone.
Founded by Wiesenthal and Steve Martocci in 2014, BLADE offers a regular schedule of flights, as well as the option for customers to charter their own on-demand flights to anywhere. Best-known locally for its service from Manhattan to New York City-area airports and the Hamptons, BLADE can reduce travel times from hours to minutes. In addition to airport trips and transfers, it now operates regular routes in several major cities around the country, serving destinations that range from weekend getaways and weddings to sporting events and music festivals. And, with the planned launch of BLADE India in April, it will expand internationally for the first time.
We hope you’ll join us for this conversation, in which Wiesenthal and Fu will discuss his vision for BLADE’s future, how it has expanded the market for private flights, its plans to make urban air mobility a mass-market product, and also why a company known for helicopters and private jets offers its employees free electric scooters.
