New York Air Taxi Service Blade Raises $38M In Series B Funding

Conventional four-wheeled travel is becoming increasingly incompatible with productivity as traffic remains the bane of professional humanity’s existence.

But where Uber and Lyft heretofore have dared not tread, New York air taxi service Blade is soaring above by carving its niche in the air transport sector. In barely five years, the startup has expanded its platform to both coastal U.S. urban markets, specializing in shuttle services to tony destinations and high-profile events like Coachella as well as offering point A to point B expediency to the busy executive. A recent $38M Series B funding round placed the company’s value at $140M. The sky’s the limit, even when it comes to your commute.
