The Lebanon Municipal Airport has dropped their airline ticket costs to meet their ticket target for the year. Cape Air, which is the only airline that flies out of Lebanon, has begun to offer discounts for their two flight destinations of Boston and White Plains, New York. The drops are $49 from $59 and $99 from $130 for Boston and New York, respectively.
The Valley News says that officials hope that the decreased fares will inspire more people to fly through Lebanon so that the airport can reach their 10,000 annual flier goal. The airport’s manager told the paper that they’ve had roughly 6,500 flights so far this year and is confident that they will hit the 10,000 flight goal, as they’ve done for the past few years since 2012.
YCN spoke to Anna Gillam, a resident of Port Chester, New York who recently flew from through Lebanon Airport to White Plains. She told YCN that, “Price, as well as the length of the trip are two huge factors when choosing your mode of transportation. One hour to New Hampshire for $99 is basically unbeatable”.
The sale for flights to both Boston and White Plains will be running until the end of the year, which is a great resource for visiting relatives for the various holidays coming up.
