Blade Partners with Los Angeles Rams to Provide Helicopter Services in Downtown Los Angeles During the Week Leading Up to the Game on Sunday
NEW YORK & LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Blade Air Mobility, Inc. (Nasdaq: BLDE, “Blade” or the “Company”), a technology-powered global air mobility platform, announced today that it is partnering with the Los Angeles Rams (the “Rams”) to provide helicopter services to invited guests across the Los Angeles skyline and Stadium throughout the week. Guests will depart directly from the rooftop of the Rams’ hospitality headquarters at Penthouse 56 hosted by Los Angeles Rams and SoFi in downtown Los Angeles, where the Rams will be hosting special events this week.
As part of the partnership, Blade will also offer helicopter charter services to bypass Los Angeles gridlock between Los Angeles area airports such as Santa Monica, Van Nuys and Orange County and the rooftop helipad at the Rams’ hospitality headquarters in downtown Los Angeles, where Blade will also construct an exclusive passenger lounge for Blade and Rams’ guests.
“We partnered with Blade to elevate the experience for our guests at Penthouse 56 and give visitors an opportunity to take in the best views of this incredible region we call home,” said Rams Chief Commercial Officer Jen Prince. “During this historic week for the Los Angeles Rams and for Los Angeles, we are thrilled to offer our guests this unparalleled opportunity they can only get at the Rams House.”
“Blade’s services will serve as a key solution to congested ingress and egress at the world’s biggest sports and entertainment destinations in cities across the globe,” added Melissa Tomkiel, Blade’s President. “Our partnership with the Rams this week will allow Blade to showcase our operational excellence and unique capabilities on the biggest stage as we continue to move more people in and out of city centers and grow our service offerings in Los Angeles and throughout the country.”
