A chopper service for the wealthy just sold out of a commuter-pass between the Hamptons and Manhattan in September, suggesting that many of the wealthy who fled the city during the pandemic plan to remain in the Hamptons for the fall. 

Blade, the chopper and mobility company, announced a special "Hamptons Commuter Pass" last week,  offering daily helicopter flights between the Hamptons and New York City. For a one-time membership fee of $965, customers can get  flights for $295 each way. Typically, the flights cost $795.

Typically, Blade's business to and from the Hamptons falls by 80% in September, as Hamptonites return to their jobs and lives in the city. But Blade's September promotion sold out of all 250 spots in less than than 24 hours.
