NH Airline Offers Cheap Fare to Get Federal Aid

A small airline in New Hampshire is offering seats for small prices.  The sale isn’t just a ploy to drum up business, however.

FOX News Radio’s Ron Flatter has the story:

Ever heard of these guys?

(Cape Air Presentation) “Little old Cape Air.  We are that little airline.”

That’s Vice President Andrew Bonney of Cape Air, which is so small that its biggest plane has only nine seats, one of which costs only $12 to fly to Boston or to White Plains, New York – with a free ride after that into New York City.

The catch?  You have to fly out of Lebanon, New Hampshire before the end of the day Monday.  Lebanon Airport is trying to boost its total of departing passengers to 10,000 for this calendar year – with that would come Federal funding for airport improvements.
