Shanghai, Your #UberCHOPPER Has Arrived.


Shanghai, it’s time to step up your ride with Uber. This weekend, we’re teaming up with KAIJET and bringing you a chance to request a helicopter at the touch of a button. So it’s time to fly!


  1. Select #UberCHOPPER in the Uber app from 9am to 10:30am on Saturday, April 25th.
  2. Set your pick-up location and press the request button.
  3. You will receive a phone call confirming your request, and an Uber will be dispatched to your location. When you arrive at the Helipad, the trip will be ended in-app, but the experience begins.​

Demand for #UberCHOPPER will be sky-high (no pun intended) and supply will be limited. If at first you don’t see any available, keep trying!


  • You can only request for #UberCHOPPER between 9am to 10:30am.
  • Do NOT forget to carry an ID (Chinese ID or Passport.)
  • Your entire trip will last about 3-4 hours. Make sure your schedule is clear for this (It’ll be well worth it!)
  • There will be only one pick-up and drop-off location.
  • Ensure your Alipay or credit card has a minimum ¥3,000 balance.
  • There might be slight wait time at the Helipad. Don’t worry, we’ll keep you hydrated with cool refreshments.
  • Safety guidelines do not permit kids or infants.
  • Uber is not a direct air or transport carrier. All air services advertised will be provided by KAIJET.
  • Chopper rides are conducted by KAIJET on Airbus Helicopters EC135 which will accommodate 5 passengers per ride.
  • If the weather doesn’t permit, #UberCHOPPER will be rescheduled to another date.
  • Lastly, demand will be sky high. Get your app ready to request for a ride!

See you in the skies!

And today, more than 40,000 restaurants globally–from poke shops to pasta spots–are sharing food with customers through UberEATS.
