Skip the Traffic and Headaches at Logan and Fly Direct to New York

November 12, 2013- Boston and New York- Building on the successful launch of nonstop service from White Plains, NY, to Metro-Boston, MA, two transformative air taxi operators are now launching nonstop service that originates in Bedford and flies to White Plains.  

For business travelers living outside the Route 128 corridor of Boston, a trip to New York no longer has to go through crowded and overloaded Logan Airport. 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 launch nonstop service from Hanscom Field in Bedford, MA, to White Plains on November 11 at fares comparable to seven-day advanced-purchase airline pricing.

Circumventing the overtaxed, major metropolitan airports of Boston and New York, air taxi service between local airports reduces door-to-door travel time from over four hours to just one and a half. Bill Herp, the CEO of Linear Air, noted “Hanscom Field in Bedford is a big part of what makes this one of the easiest and most efficient ways to travel by air. Passengers can show up here, avoiding the long delays of Logan, and fly directly to where they are going. Plus, the software platform we’ve created makes it easy for travelers to book their trips online through,, or, ensuring that buying these new flights … is as simple as booking any other flight.”   

Hopscotch Air CEO Andrew Schmertz added “We offer hassle-free travel to White Plains, which is minutes away from some of the biggest businesses in both Westchester and Connecticut and an easy car or train ride away from Manhattan. No long airport lines, no delays, and no crowded airline terminals.”
