For the first time in over three decades Stowe, Vermont can be accessed directly by commercial plane from New York City. The last time this route was available was in 1984 when the now defunct, Vermont Air, flew from JFK to the Morrisville-Stowe State Airport. The airport eventually closed and degraded from lack of upkeep over the years, with its tarmac cracking and asphalt invaded by overgrowth as reported by The New York Post.
That was until 2014 when a local local lawyer, Russell Barr, founded Stowe Aviation and restored the old airport to its former glory with some financial assistance from the government to the tune of $27 million.
Shortly thereafter in the fall of 2015, a small charter company began flying between Westchester County Airport in White Plains (not quite NYC but close enough) and Stowe. They run 2-4 flights per day Friday-Sunday. To book your flight go HERE.
Here is what you can expect from the $395 oneway ticket:
-75-minute scheduled shuttle
-Aircraft: Pilatus PC-12 propjets (8 person max)
-No TSA lines (enjoy a private lounge-sporting FBO terminal)
-Nice seats with leather and wooden trim
-20 minutes to the mountain once your wheels down in Vermont
