ERA Group, January 27, 2017 - HOUSTON - Era Group Inc., one of the largest helicopter operators in the world, today announced that it will offer VIP helicopter transport service to attendees flying in for the big game on Sunday, February 5, 2017.
The service will originate from three Houston-area airports, and passengers will travel to Wildcat Golf Club and take private car service the last couple miles to the stadium. This one-of-a-kind service will allow discerning, time sensitive VIP clientele to avoid traffic congestion and delays on the day of the big game.
“Hosting the big game in Houston is a marquee event for the city, and we are excited to offer this unique VIP flight experience,” said Paul White, Era’s Senior Vice President, Commercial. “This service caters to a unique customer base and aligns well with our core capabilities as the nation’s longest serving helicopter transport provider.”
As part of its VIP flight offering, Era will operate from Houston Hobby, Ellington Field and Sugarland Regional Airport with service to Wildcat Golf Club, one of Houston’s top ranked luxury courses located just a couple miles away from NRG Stadium.
“With roughly 140,000 out-of-town visitors coming in for the big game adding to Houston’s traffic challenges, roadway conditions are expected to be unpleasant,” continued Mr. White. “What better way to bypass the congestion on the roadways than to take a helicopter flight from one of Houston’s local airports? As an added bonus, customers can wave to motorists as they fly by.”
Era is accepting reservations for its game-day service on a first come, first served basis and recommends that you book your seat now to take advantage of this one-of-a-kind opportunity. Reservations can be made by contacting (337) 540-1822 or by emailing [email protected]
