Uber and Simplifly bring UberChopper to Colombo

Uber riders had the chance to experience a ride in a helicopter owned and operated by Simplifly, by tapping a button on their Uber app.

Senior Launcher, Uber, Varun Mundkur said, "Uber is all about bringing amazing experiences to people, on-demand, using the power of new technology - whether it's a safe, reliable ride around Colombo or an aerial tour of the city. With UberCHchopper we gave a number of riders an opportunity to experience a helicopter ride, touring the skies and to witness the breathtaking views of the city at the push of a button."

The UberChopper service ran from 9 am - 11 am on Sunday, January 3. To request, riders had only to select UberChopper in the Uber app. Then select their 'Set Pickup Location' and hit request. Once the request was confirmed, riders received a voice call for final confirmation.

An Uber car picked them up, and transported them to Water's Edge, and they were then taken on a once-in-a-lifetime 15-minute aerial tour of the city.

Before Colombo, riders in New York, Austin, Cannes, Hong Kong, Jakarta and several cities around the world also experienced UberChopper.

UberChopper is part of Uber's deep commitment to bring amazing experiences using the power of innovative technology while prioritizing safety, reliability and convenience.
