We're on the verge of the unofficial start to Summer! As meaningful and patriotic as it is to honor the men and women who died while serving in the U.S. military, (after all, that's why celebrate) Memorial Day Weekend brings with it some of the worst traffic snarls of the year. How many times have you found yourself stuck in bumper to bumper gridlock, wishing you could just fly up, up and away from it all and get to where you're going?
Enter Tailwind Air. A veteran-owned business, according to their website, "motivated by a passion for aviation and urban mobility." The company founded in 2012 out of Connecticut but now offer air travel by Seaplane in and out of Boston Harbor to New york City. That leg has been so popular with travelers, they've decided to expand service to....the Cape?
Tailwind offers flights from Fan Pier Marina in Boston Harbor to Provincetown in just 20 minutes. The company says those flights will average $300 each way. Want to visit "America's Hometown"?, you can also fly from Plymouth to Boston, for $75. Their director of sales, Gabriela Salas says:
“if you compare it to the train, you know, the fares that the train offers are very compatible with ours. You don’t have to deal with TSA, no crowds. You don’t have to even be here an hour before the flight 10 minutes is enough for us.”
