Mercedes-Benz Australia has just announced its new transfer service in collaboration with helicopter company Air Melbourne. The service will specifically help “time poor customers” who will leave their Mercedes-Benzes at the major Melbourne Mercedes-Benz dealership where they are then flown to the airport or alternatively, from the airport back to the CBD in just four minutes. By comparison, it takes about 20 minutes with no traffic to make the same journey.
While the helicopters to be used aren’t Mercedes-Benz helicopters, they are certainly luxurious enough for wealthy customers looking to skip the traffic jams and enjoy the freedom and privilege which their money brings. The new service is dubbed the Mercedes-Benz Heli-Express and cost wise, is quite reasonable especially if a Mercedes owner is running late for an important interstate or international meeting. A one way trip costs $274 locally which is about $254 in the U.S.
