Voom, the helicopter service with ridesharing and one-hour advance booking that Airbus developed and launch first in Latin America, is getting its U.S. debut starting in San Francisco. The service will be available for travel between five Bay Area airports, including SFO, San Jose, Napa, Oakland and Palo Alto.Travelers wanting to make use of Voom can book their trips online, using either the dedicated Voom app for smartphones, or the Voom website. You can make bookings up to an hour before a scheduled flight departure, and on the day of travel, you only need to be at the helipad 15 minutes prior to boarding, which makes it a pretty attractive option for business travelers frequently making trips around the Bay Area, or as a traffic-skipping option to get to the airport faster for longer-haul trips.
