Boston, Mass. — Two exciting new destinations will be accessible by Tailwind Air seaplanes starting this summer, creating the fastest way to Provincetown, MA from Boston Harbor. Starting on May 25th 2022, travelers may now enjoy a nonstop seaplane flight directly from Boston Harbor (IATA Code: BNH) at Fan Pier Marina to Provincetown Harbor in Massachusetts. Flights from Boston Harbor are approximately 35 minutes from dock to dock and include complimentary water taxi/launch service to and from the seaplane. Tailwind will also offer nonstop and one-stop flights from Manhattan at Skyport Marina at East 23rd Street to Provincetown Harbor, MA.
“We are the only seaplane operator in the Northeast with scheduled commuter service, allowing a semiprivate, super-fast experience to hard-to-reach popular summer destinations, while also continuing to serve our core Manhattan to Boston Harbor customers,” said Tailwind Air Co-Founder and Director of Scheduled Services Peter Manice.
With the addition of Provincetown Harbor, Tailwind Air now serves four destinations from its Boston Harbor base. Manhattan is served three times daily seven days a week. Plymouth, MA is served daily. One-stop same plane service to East Hampton (HTO) is also available.
Manice explained, “We are excited to bring this new seasonal summer service and destinations to Bostonians and New Yorkers in addition to our existing seasonal summer destinations from New York to East Hampton, Sag Harbor, Montauk, and Shelter Island.”
