In a brief telephone interview, Sabba said it is the only service of its kind provided by Uber anywhere in the world because it is not limited to specific events like the Cannes Film Festival and the Sundance Film Festival in Utah where Uber has offered helicopter services.

He said Ubercopter is a partnership with the Airbus Group and uses three helicopter operators in Sao Paulo. He said Tuesday that prices range from $17 to $80 a seat.
