The desire to own brisk modes of transportation is on every rich person’s list. And we are not just taking super cars here. In fact, if you are in Japan you might just see one of these speeding off in the skies thanks to the efforts of the Japanese Mori Building Co. Yes, if rumors are to be believed, then you can get to Narita airport from downtown Tokyo in a matter of just 30 minutes if you hire a Hermes helicopter.
The service will be run between a rooftop in the central district of Akasaka and Narita International Airport, which are 44 miles apart and would require an hour and a half of car travel. We are told that the helicopter ride will not just save time but will also allow the passengers the luxury of looking down the splendor of Tokyo while sitting in comfy seats made from rich-brown calf leather.
The chopper, we are told, has been painted in white with orange ribbons on the sides. It will carry four passengers in each flight, some 22 times every day. The service starts from September 16 and will cost $790 for a one-way ride. But hey, that’s minus the food or drink services.
