Each destination serves as a gateway to the metropolitan areas of New York City and Boston, in addition to major tourist attractions in New York State and New England which include Woodbury Common Premium Shopping Outlets, Cape Cod and Nantucket.

Our affordable fares and convenient flight times mean a day trip to New York whether for work or pleasure can be a reality for all.”
