Linear Air will resume its seasonal service from Teterboro to Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket this year.
The airline will fly from Teterboro to Nantucket on the weekend of April 29, when the Annual Daffodil Festival is held.
From Memorial Day weekend until Columbus Day, Linear's service will fly weekends only to Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket, said Bill Herp, president of Linear.
All flights will be $399 one-way.
Linear recently discontinued its Teterboro to Bedford, Mass., per-seat service because of lower-than-desired ridership. Herp said the company wants to focus its energies on one destination from Teterboro.
He said the Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket flights were popular last summer -- justifying their return.
"We have more people interested in flying out to Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket than to Bedford," Herp said.
