Money is no object!

Tom Cruise spared no expense in making the most of his precious time with daughter Suri, 6. Before returning her to his ex-wife Katie Holmes Thursday evening, Cruise took Suri on a mini father-daughter “beach vacation,” a source tells Us Weekly.

The 50-year-old actor traveled to East Hampton, New York, from the Pier 6 Heliport in a chartered helicopter out of NYC. The trip costs $3,100 each way and can fit up to six people. The helicopter ride saved the star dad some travel time to maximize his short vacation with Suri.

Just in time for Holmes, 33, to take Suri to her gymnastics class at Chelsea Piers, Cruise flew back into NYC midafternoon. Sources recently confirmed to Us that Holmes will retain primary custody of Suri.

The Mission: Impossible actor reunited with Suri on July 17 in NYC after being away filming Oblivion in June Lake, Calif. “Tom was shooting a film on location, but he spoke to Suri every day,” his attorney, Bert Fields, told Page Six. “Tom dearly loves Suri, and the last thing he would ever do is abandon her.”
