Tailwind to offer seaplane shuttle services

21 May 2014

Tailwind Air Service said it will offer weekday seaplane service between Manhattan´s East River at 23rd Street, Boston Logan and Washington Dulles.

Flights will depart Manhattan in the mornings, offering same-day returns from Boston and DC in the evenings.

Tailwind said this is a new route and is not serviced by any existing seaplane operator. Tailwinds´ seaplanes will ultimately land in the downtown waterfronts in both Boston and Washington, D.C., but in early stages the flights will land at private terminals in Boston and D.C.

Tailwind, a new venture, has aligned with Fly The Whale, an established seaplane and private charter operator most popular for its weekend shuttles to the Hamptons and Nantucket. The two companies will utilize each other´s aircraft for increased and efficient service.
