ALBANY, N.Y.— An airline startup will offer nonstop flights between Albany and Buffalo beginning Feb. 1.
OneJet will fly 30-passenger regional jets with fares ranging from $150 to $170 each way. It’s targeting business travellers, with 50-minute gate-to-gate flights. There will be two daily round trips on weekdays. Ticket sales begin on Jan. 9.
Albany lost its nonstop service to Buffalo in 2010, when a turboprop made one daily round trip.
Driving to Buffalo from Albany takes more than four hours on the Thruway, and the train takes more than five hours.
