The East River is about to get serious. The Standard Hotel with the help of Shoreline Aviation are set to launch StndAIR a new “airline” servicing East Coast destinations within a 300 mile radius of N.Y.C. (Nantucket, Martha’s Vineyard, Cape Cod, Hudson Valley), as well as other flights during peak weekends between N.Y.C. and East Hampton.

The StndAir Cessna 208 Caravan Amphibian aircraft seats eight passengers and is available for use by the public and The Standard New York and Sunset Beach hotel guests as park of stay packages. Flights depart from 23 Street and FDR on the East River running from May 26 – October 10, 2011.

Highly impressive. More details on how to book shortly.
