Eos Airlines, which has already shaken up the industry with its “uncrowded, uncompromising” Eos Class experience continues to set new benchmarks for hassle-free travel. Eos announced today it has signed a partnership agreement with US Helicopter to provide helicopter service between Manhattan and JFK International Airport for its Guests traveling to London. Eos offers 44 flights per week between New York’s JFK and London’s Stansted Airport.

After a convenient eight-minute helicopter flight Guests will be greeted by an Eos Guide and escorted to the Lounge or directly to their flight.
