Helicopter champagne delivery service solves a problem very few people have

French champagne house Bollinger and Kiwi helicopter charter service Heletranz have joined up to provide emergency bubbly delivery for those who just can’t get to the bottle shop.

The very rich are different to you and me, as the quote says. While the majority of us aren’t presented with too many barriers to popping out and picking up some champagne, those with holiday homes in Waiheke Island’s Billionaire’s Bay, Bay of Islands, Coromandel or Great Barrier Island may find it difficult to access high-end bubbles if they haven’t thought ahead.

“New Zealand has an impressive number of high-net-worth individuals tucked away in its glorious paradisal spots, anywhere from the top of the North Island to Waiheke Island and the Coromandel,” says Heletranz owner Sofia Ambler.

“Many of these luxury accommodation sites are accessed via helicopters and are remote and isolate for added privacy, also increasingly viewed as a luxury on its own. It makes sense for us to offer the missing service of helicopter-delivered top shelf champagne.”

The Register’s inquiry about the cost of this service did not receive a response
