Trying to cash in on the end of the busy holiday season, one airline is promoting flights from Boston to New York for only $12.
The limited offer, which so far almost 10,000 people have taken up airline Cape Air on is based on a way way flight and is an attempt to qualify for a federal grant to transform Lebanon Airport in New Hampshire.
What the airline and Cape Air are hoping for is to hit a qualifying number of people using an airport, known as enplanements so they receive a $1 million grant for the community airport – and that figure is 10,000.
‘We’re basically sold out,’ said Trish Lorino, director of marketing and public relations for Cape Air. ‘That’s the highest number of enplanements for Lebanon Airport in quite a long time.’
Cape Air expects to smash through the 10,000 barrier imminently as it offers a flight to Westchester County Airport in White Plains, New York followed up by a bus services to 35th Street and 9th Avenue in midtown Manhattan – all for inclusive for the $12.
