StndAIR is Back
By Liz Smith, May 30th, 2012
StndAIR, launched by The Standard, is returning this summer to make traveling in style easier for New Yorkers. The 8 passenger seaplane will have regularly scheduled 45-minute weekend flights to East Hampton as well as charter services to any port within 300 miles of Manhattan including Montauk, Nantucket, Martha’s Vineyard, and Provincetown. Thursday and Friday evening departures from the East River for $525 one-way will keep New Yorkers beachside on a budget, and during the week, passengers can create off-peak flight plans with seven friends for just $99. Frequent fliers even receive a complimentary flight for every 10 flights booked! Just when you thought it couldn’t get any better, there are added perks to the airline like cocktail hour with a glass of André Balazs Reserve Sunset Beach Rosé and Swedish Fish. Even more exciting are the Warby Parker sunglasses available in three styles gifted for flying StndAIR. As part of “Buy a Pair, Give a Pair,” for every person who boards a StndAIR flight, Warby Parker will ensure that a pair of prescription glasses is distributed to one of the billion people worldwide without access to affordable eyewear. No more road rage and no more wasted time behind the wheel! For more information about StndAIR, visit www.stndair.com.
