They say airport was 5 minutes away from linden , without saying it was if we use taxi . When we called for help as we were about to miss the departure they were of no help at all. So we finally made walking for one hour ..and when we ask for water they say go to the vending machine , which was sold out .. so I won’t recommend that company to have fun ..

We apologize that it wasn’t clear where Linden Airport in relation to the Linden Station. We recommend taking a taxi or an uber from the train station, and we provide a Google Maps link to the location to assist our passengers. We are tenants at the Linden Airport, and we will follow up with the airport management to inquire as to why the vending machines are empty.

First off I can’t thank the staff of the helicopter ride enough! After planning the trip to linden airport with no hiccups we arrived at linden station to find we could not get a cab and arrived at the airport 5 mins late to find we had missed our flight by 5 mins. The staff were very helpfull friendly and most of all ensured we didn’t miss out on this fantastic experience! We was up in the air within 30 mins of arrival and so glad we were! Great flight great knowledge and a really fun and enjoyable experience with fantastic views. Bit of a treck to get there however no problems getting back to Manhattan. Definitely recommend.
