A Boston-area charter operator has teamed up with a New York-area charter operator to launch scheduled (Part 135) service in a Cirrus SR22. The routes, which connect Westchester County Airport in White Plains, N.Y., to either Hanscom Field in Bedford, Mass., or Boston’s Logan International Airport, are priced to compete with “walk-up” airline fares (typically less than 7 days advance booking), with the added bonus of skipping security lines, congested airports, and other conveniences such as having the flight department also arrange ground transportation as needed.
