United Airlines and electric air taxi company Archer Aviation Inc. are teaming up to offer commuter flights between downtown Manhattan and Newark Liberty International Airport. The service isn't expected to begin until 2025 at the earliest, the companies said, but added that once it begins, it will take less than 10 minutes to fly from the Downtown Manhattan Heliport, which is located above Battery Park on Pier 6, to Newark Airport. A similar journey by car can take upwards of an hour or more during rush hour, the companies said.
