Hopscotch Air To Debut SR22 'Air Limo' Service
A new air taxi provider plans to soon offer customers in the
northeastern US a way to, in the words of company
representatives, "bypass the airline mess."
As soon as Spring 2008, travelers will be introduced to the
luxury and convenience of private air charter at prices competitive
with the airlines. Fliers will be able to experience some of the
true benefits of general aviation -- the freedom to travel, and
leave behind over-crowded airports and the frustrating delays of
Hopscotch Air, which has applied for government certification,
plans to debut its “air limo” service, which will allow
travelers to fly at their convenience and on their schedule.
Using a fleet of Cirrus SR22s, Hopscotch plans to fly customers
to hundreds of airports within 500 miles of New York metro airports
in Westchester, Long Island, New Jersey, and Connecticut. While the
company may access any airport used by the airlines,
representatives note many lightly-used airports are closer to
people’s homes and destinations.
Hopscotch Air will fly on demand: passengers leave when they
want to, go where they want to, and come home when they want
And, unlike traditional charter service, Hopscotch Air is
competitively priced to the airlines. Two people can fly from New
York to Boston for less than a walk-up ticket on the Delta or US
Airways Shuttle, according to the company.
