Uber is taking ride sharing to new heights after launching its new air service between John F. Kennedy Airport and Midtown Manhattan.

A trip could take up to two hours by car would now take around a half hour in an Uber copter. The company is offering eight-minute trips to the airport out of Manhattan south of Houston Street on weekdays during afternoon rush hour.

A single ride will cost up to $200.

Only customers that have achieved platinum and diamond status in the company’s rewards programs are eligible to take this service.

That’s not the only big announcement that Uber made. The corporation also said it will be expanding its comfort ride options, which will provide users with at least 36 inches of legroom and the option to request a ride without conversations with the driver.

Riders who select the comfort option will also get new cars and will have the ability to request a certain temperature in the vehicle.

Those comfort trips will cost a little more than a standard ride. They’re being made available in major cities across the United States.

The service will eventually be branded under the name “Uber Air.”
