New Air Taxi Service Launches the Only Scheduled Non-Stop Flights From White Plains to Boston on October 1st

For business travelers throughout Westchester and southern Connecticut, the trip to Boston no longer has to go through Queens (or a Queens airport). Two transformative air taxi companies are teaming up to provide the only non-stop, same-day roundtrip service from White Plains to Boston, at fares comparable with seven-day advance purchase airline pricing.

Linear Air, a Boston-based pioneer of air taxi services, and Hopscotch Air, the New York operator with a fleet of technologically advanced Cirrus air taxi aircraft, will begin scheduled, roundtrip service from Westchester County Airport to Boston's downtown Logan Airport on October 1st, and scheduled, roundtrip service from White Plains to Boston's Rt. 128 airport in Bedford on October 3rd.

Bill Herp, the CEO of Linear Air, noted "Westchester County Airport is just minutes from the homes and offices of thousands of people who fly to Boston each year. We never understood why the airlines don't offer non-stop service from Westchester. So we decided to do it. Plus, the software platform we've created makes it easy for travelers to book their trips online through Kayak.com, Hipmunk.com, or LinearAir.com, ensuring that buying these new flights to Boston is as simple as booking any other flight."

"We offer hassle-free travel to Boston," Hopscotch Air CEO Andrew Schmertz said. "No long airport lines, no delays, no crowded airline terminals, free parking. And, finally, no stewing on the Triborough Bridge, trying to get to La Guardia."

Dale Klapmeier, Co-founder and CEO of Cirrus Aircraft, stated, "Those of us in general aviation know well the benefits of flexibility and efficiency the Cirrus aircraft and this type of service provides. Congratulations to Linear Air and Hopscotch Air for offering affordable regional travel in a Cirrus to businesses and individuals who may not have considered this form of transportation before."

Because air taxi service is also available for on-demand flights, customers have the unique option of also booking flights at different times - any time! - that they might need to. "You can fly on our schedule, or on your own," added Herp. "Though it does cost a bit more when you fly on demand," noted Schmertz.

Passengers can book their flights directly at linearair.com/routes, and can choose from on-field rental cars, taxicabs, black cars and public transit options at both Hanscom Field and at Logan Airport.

On October 1st, the companies will host a kick-off event at Panorama Flight Services at 67 Tower Road, Hangar T, Westchester County Airport, White Plains, NY 10604 (914-328-9800), beginning at 6:30 am.

Company executives, pilots, and passengers will be on hand to answer questions, show off the cool airplanes, and, then, fly to Boston.
