New York Road Trip

BLADEone: Manhattan to Miami

It’s already that time again. Leaves are falling faster than rain, and scarves are making their seasonal comeback. As the cold rolls in, it’s a novelty to curl up by the fire, read a book, and have a cup of hot cocoa.  But once that wears off and you are in need of some serious Vitamin D, it’s time to head south for the winter. And thanks to BLADEone, you can fly from Manhattan to Miami every single weekend. Yeah, that’s right, goodbye winter blues.

BLADEone took a Bombardier CRJ 200 and gave it a luxury makeover. The plane was originally designed to seat sixty passengers, but let’s get real: you need way more legroom than that. Now, you’re flying with plenty of sprawl space with a maximum of fifteen other fliers. Plus, you have in-flight cocktails, iPad Pros, and dining options that can only be classified as awesome. The food isn’t just good compared to other airlines (which would be a pretty low bar); it’s great compared to anything. It’s like eating at your favorite restaurant, only you’re ten thousand miles above ground and headed toward the beach.

Access to the flights has never been easier. From Manhattan, it’s just a fifteen minute helicopter ride to Westchester airport. You’ll land directly next to your jet, so there’s no need to hustle in big airport crowds. As soon as you land, you’ll be ready for your first Friday night mojito at the BLADE Lounge Miami, just a short drive from Downtown or South Beach. And now you’re ready to explore.

Miami is like the sin city of the East Coast (except the drinks are cheaper, the weather is nicer, and you can surf). Whether you want that crazy weekend you’ll never quite remember, or just a relaxing few days to watch the waves roll in, you can find it here. So trade that cozy winter blanket for a beach towel and that mocha for an Atlantico 75 (that’s one cocktail you need to try).

You can still bring your favorite book if you want - it just depends on the kind of weekend you’re in the mood for. BLADEone will get you out of the cold and into the sun - but the rest of your weekend? Well, that’s totally up to you.
