Uber to launch chopper services in Nairobi and Mombasa

uber chopper

NAIROBI, Kenya, Aug 31 – Cab-hailing app Uber has partnered with Corporate Helicopters to tease a chopper hailing service offered by Uber.

Just as they did when they first launched Uber cabs in Kenya, UberChopper is working with media and entertainment personalities to hype up the chopper service.

Six winners will be picked from a social media competition to fly alongside Larry Madowo, Huddah Munroe or Eric Omondi on 4th September. Winners from Mombasa will fly with Chef Alim DJ Lenium or Miss Global Kenya, Tima Keilah.

Riders in Nairobi will go on a tour between Nairobi and the Rift Valley while Mombasa winners will explore the expansive coastline.

UberChopper has used the same strategy to launch in several cities from last year including San Francisco, Los Angeles, Melbourne, Bangkok, Hong Kong, Rio de Janeiro, Lisbon, Shanghai and Cape Town.

The hail-a- chopper service has focussed on airlifting customers to events within cities. For example, a 45 min tour of LA and the Malibu Wines property costs $500 (Sh50,000) per person.
