From Luxury Listings NYC: Domestic air travel these days is the equivalent of “Lord of the Flies” and even short first-class flights to Miami can be a nightmare. Enter Blade, an aviation startup founded by former Sony and Warner Music Group exec Rob Wiesenthal and GroupMe cofounder Steve Martocci.

The company, which is currently known for its exclusive trips to the Hamptons, has introduced a real game changer just in time for Art Basel called BLADEone. The service will shuttle one-percenters via helicopter from one of three Manhattan luxury lounges to a Gulfstream IV jet at the Westchester airport. From there, they will be whisked away to all the sun, sea, sand and high-priced art Miami has to offer. [more]
