New Nonstop Air Taxi Service Launches from Bedford, MA to White Plains, NY 

News Facts

  • Service departs daily from Boston's premier executive airport, Hanscom Field (BED) at 7:15am and returns at 6:10pm from White Plains/Westchester County Airport (HPN).
  • Hanscom Field is less than fifteen miles from downtown Boston, approximately twelve miles from the biotech center at Kendall Square in Cambridge, and is located on Rt. 128/I-95, the high-tech center of New England.
  • Fares are for same-day roundtrips: $775.00 BED-HPN-BED. Flying to Logan Airport, and metro NYC airports is also possible for slightly higher fares, costs increase due to higher landing fees typical of large airline airports.

  • Passengers can chose from on-field rental cars, taxicabs, black cars and public transit options at both Hanscom Field and at Logan Airport. 

  • All flights are conducted in Cirrus SR22 aircraft, a state-of-the art air taxi featuring the latest avionics, roomy seating in executive leather interiors, and advanced safety systems.  See the aircraft page for details. 
  • Passengers can search for flights at fly.linearair.com/routes, as well as kayak.com or hipmunk.com
