When I told you last week that Sunset Beach was back for the season, I also mentioned that I would have some more news for you. Well, I'm here to bring it to you, and it's good. Starting on Thursday, our beloved little seaplane that could, StndAIR, will fly again for its second summer season in the sky!
We are beyond excited about its return, and you should be too, so let me tell you why...
Just like last year, we have scheduled flights to East Hampton departing every Thursday and Friday afternoons and returning on Sunday night or early Monday morning. If you're going to Shelter Island, we can drop you off there too. Flights are $525 one way, so when it only takes 45 minutes to get to your beach house, why would you want to spend four hours on the expressway?
While in flight, you'll get to enjoy the latest vintage of the André Balazs Reserve Rosé, and if you're staying at Sunset Beach, not only are will you enjoy a private sun deck with unobstructed water views, there will also be a fresh copy of The Mr. Porter Post, the quarterly newspaper produced by MR. PORTER.COM, on all things, well, stylish, waiting for you in your room.
If the scheduled flights aren't to your fancy, don't worry. You didn't think we'd leave you behind in our seaplane mist, did you? Starting at just $99, you and seven of your friends can book the plane during off-peak hours and enjoy the same speed and luxury your peak friends do. Just remember, you need seven friends or the plane won't fly. Listen, I don't make the rules. I just follow them...well, sometimes.
Of course, when you're in the mood to splurge, don't forget you can still charter the plane to any destination within 300 miles of Manhattan including Nantucket, Martha's Vineyard and Provincetown, just to name a few of our locales. And for all you frequent fliers, once you book 10 flights, the 11th one is on us. We just keep making it easier and easier for you.
If you didn't fly with us last season, now's your chance to the join the half-mile high club. To book your flight or for more information, please visit StndAIR or call 855-786-3247.
Find me on the beach when you land...
