Droom, an automobile startup, has an interesting offering this Christmas day for those interested in air rides. The brand has entered into a strategic alliance with Uber, an American cab service startup, a consumer Internet company, for the festive period to bring on-demand chopper rides for the hip-and-happening consumers.
The move is facilitated by the Aerial Vehicle category on Droom’s platform, which allows Droom users to rent and purchase aerial vehicles to fulfil all of their private aviation requirements.
Under the partnership, Droom will enable reservations for half-hour chopper rides through the Uber app on Christmas Day, December 25.
This is how its done: iPhone6_full-screenshot_Delhi_UberCHOPPER; Fire up the app between 10 am and 12 noon on Friday, December 25, 2015. Slide over to the UberCHOPPER view and simply request. If connected, you and your friend will be whisked away to the airfield and get a scenic chopper ride for 15 minutes.
The demand for UberCHOPPER will be skyhigh and supply will be limited. So, you may have to try multiple times. The chopper rides will be available between 1 pm and 3 pm only – so make sure you and your friend are ready to leave.
The total fare is Rs 4,999 inclusive of your Uber ride to and from the airfield and the chopper ride for two.
The lucky users availing themselves of this offer will be regaled with princely treatment. Uber will pick up and drop them to the venue, where they will be treated to a lunch/snack before going on the ride.
Droom and Uber had previously collaborated for their ‘Supercar on Demand’ initiative, allowing consumers a chance to rent premier vehicles such as Audi R8 and Hummer and enjoy the superlative experience of being at the wheel of a supercar.
