Uber thought this was an awesome idea. So, the popular ride-sharing service did this two Independence Days in a row. Uber partnered with Liberty Helicopters Inc. to provide direct helicopter rides from a New York helipad to East Hampton. For $3,000 the helicopters carried 5 guests on the 40 minutes ride. This is a perfect example of a company connecting with another to fulfill a client “need.” Additionally, the company has partnered with restaurant owners through UberEats and, this week, they have announced a hot air balloon service in some areas.
