Ritz-Carlton Residences, Miami Beach Helicopter Service

The Ritz-Carlton Residences, Miami Beach is Taking its Amenities to New Heights — Literally

December 14, 2017

Imagine bypassing rush-hour traffic in a private helicopter and getting to the airport in less than 10 minutes. The Ritz-Carlton Residences, Miami Beach Helicopter Service will be offering that opportunity, and more, to its residents.

From the Residences, owners will take a short ride on the property’s house yacht through a private waterway and link up with the chopper at a floating launch pad (called a navigable marine helistop) located in Biscayne Bay.

Flights for up to six people can be booked to anywhere in Florida, including the Keys and also the Bahamas. Thanks to a partnership with iLand Miami in conjunction with Miami Executive Helicopters, The Ritz-Carlton Residences will schedule helicopter shuttles directly through its concierge desk. Pricing will depend on helicopter type (three-person or six-person capacity), distance and number of passengers.
