New York-based air charter operator Wings Air Helicopters, a Virtuoso Preferred Supplier, and Blantyre, a Relais and Châteaux and Forbes Five Star Resort in Lenox, MA join forces to create the ultimate luxury getaway in the heart of the Berkshires.
For those looking to minimize the stress of travel, Wings Air’s state-of-the-art helicopters can fly the 155-mile, normally 3-hour trip between New York City and the charming, historic town of Lenox in just an hour average. Thanks to the large size of the Blantyre estate, helicopters can land right on the property, affording guests the utmost convenience.
Blantyre is situated on 110 acres of lawn and woodlands with 19 rooms, 3 cottages, and 1 villa – a beautiful country house hotel reminiscent of a gentler time of elegance and romance. Built in 1902, the majestic Tudor-style estate boasts sumptuous guestrooms, a spa, renowned cuisine and an exceptional wine cellar. This enchanting resort is a getaway for all seasons: gorgeous gardens for picnics, splendid fall foliage or winter wonderland.
Roundtrip helicopter rates start at $4,500 between Blantyre and Midtown Manhattan. Wings Air’s helicopters can carry 2-6 passengers, moderate amounts of luggage and are equipped with various in-flight comforts such as noise-cancelling BOSE headsets and magazines for the passengers’ enjoyment. All ages are welcome on board. On-site helicopter landings are limited to daylight hours; after-hours flights will use nearby Pittsfield Municipal Airport. Helicopter service is available year-round, weather permitting.
