    First-ever scheduled service from the “Big Apple” to the “Sailing Capital of the World” set to transport travelers on Tradewind-operated Pilatus PC-12 fleet

    May 27, 2021 (Oxford, Connecticut) - Tradewind Aviation, a premium operator of both scheduled shuttle service and on-demand private charter flights throughout the U.S. and Caribbean, is thrilled to announce the launch of new scheduled shared charter service from the New York metropolitan area to charming Newport, Rhode Island. The service will start on July 2nd, 2021 and operate on peak travel days through the fall. This new route allows for travelers from the New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut areas to fly to Newport in just 35 minutes.

    This summer, flight service from New York to Newport will be available through Tradewind Aviation Thursdays, Fridays, Sundays, and Mondays between Westchester County Airport (HPN) and Newport State Airport (NPT) in Middletown, Rhode Island, which is just 10 minutes from downtown Newport. Flights from New York will depart from the Million Air Private Jet terminal with streamlined security ensuring that guests can arrive just 30 minutes before flight time.

    Guests can also look forward to flying in style and comfort in Tradewind Aviation’s fleet of modern Pilatus PC-12 aircraft, with complimentary refreshments and snacks, onboard. Flight time in either direction is approximately 35 minutes, and rates will range from $145 to $445.

    Known for developing the shared charter concept in 2002 with service to Nantucket, and subsequently to other leisure destinations such as Martha’s Vineyard and Stowe, as well as to St. Barths and Anguilla in the Caribbean, Tradewind Aviation’s introduction of a new dedicated route to Newport capitalizes not only on the increasing buzz the destination has seen over recent years, but also on the reinvigoration of travel expected for the remainder of 2021 ahead. With a host of new hotels, maritime activities, stunning natural landscapes, year-round festivals, and culinary attractions and more, Newport has something for everyone.

    “We are thrilled to offer convenient flights to one of the most iconic towns in New England,” said David Zipkin, Co-Founder and Vice President at Tradewind Aviation. “Newport had been an increasingly popular destination for Tradewind prior to the pandemic, and we believe that will continue as our guests seek destinations to explore and enjoy as they begin traveling again. Our unique fleet of Pilatus PC-12 aircraft is perfectly suited for the relatively small runway at Newport, which allows our guests to beat the traffic and arrive in style directly into the historic city and return home with the same ease.”
