Peer-to-peer ridesharing app Lyft is partnering with helicopter charter marketplace EvoLux to offer the chance to win a flight over the international yacht race on Lake Michigan during the Louis Vuitton America’s Cup World Series Chicago.
Lyft and Evolux will work together to take the winner from their door to Vertiport Chicago and then into the skies above Lake Michigan. The helicopter, provided by Helimotion, will be flown by the same crew who flew the helicopter that filmed Batman in Chicago.
To have a chance of winning, contestants should tweet a picture of themselves and a Lyft driver in Chicago to @Lyft_CHI by noon, Friday June 10th.EvoLux is the world’s first helicopter charter marketplace. Its social SkyShare™ reservation platform could be described as “Lyft for helicopters”, as it offers ridesharing for helicopter travel.
The app allows users to either schedule their own flight, or book spare seats with with others through crowd-sourced flight reservations, thereby increasing occupancy. The platform matches consumer demand to unfilled seats, improving efficiency and allowing operators to generate more revenues.
Riding in a helicopter used to be something only a few people would experience in their lifetime. EvoLux is looking to change this, and make helicopter travel more accessible than ever before. The company is also seeking to increase efficiency in the helicopter travel industry by offering a centralized marketplace coupled with data and metrics for helicopter operators.
