Business Community Successfully Advocates for Direct Flights from Buffalo to Albany

When planning your next trip to the state capital, put down the car keys and exchange them for a boarding pass. Starting this February, OneJet will takeoff from the Buffalo Niagara International Airport enroute to Albany. This is a big win for the local business community which worked diligently to bring this service back after being pulled more than seven years ago.

“Air service development is economic development,” said Dottie Gallagher-Cohen, president and CEO of the Buffalo Niagara Partnership. “The Partnership helped organize a strong showing of support and interest from several business leaders and local employers.  The feedback the business community provided is reflected in OneJet’s plans.

As OneJet’s new Buffalo-Albany service set to take flight, it will do so with a new plane.  The carrier is introducing its new 30-seat aircraft, which will offer travelers enhanced business-class amenities including expanded legroom at each seat, complimentary high-speed Wi-Fi, streaming entertainment and complimentary snacks and beverages.

“OneJet is restoring that connection between upstate cities and the northeastern United States,” commented John , Senior Adviser to OneJet and former U.S. Deputy Secretary of Transportation. “OneJet is really an economic strategy for upstate and for cities across America.”

Reservations can be booked starting January 9, 2018 with take-off scheduled for the first of February.
