Own the Plane, or Just a Seat, to Nantucket

Wheels Up offers shuttle service to the popular New England summer getaway

May 5, 2021

Wheels Up, a known brand in private aviation, is resuming its summer shuttle service with round trip flights from Westchester County Airport (HPN) just outside of New York City to Nantucket Memorial Airport (ACK), beginning Friday, May 21 and continuing through Labor Day weekend. Members will be able to book directly in the Wheels Up App and pay by the seat, rather than booking an entire aircraft, for flights on the Beechcraft King Air 350i. For the health and safety of all Members and the crew, all flights will abide by Wheels Up Safe Passage™ health and safety protocols and, in accordance with federal guidelines, all passengers will be required to wear a face covering while inside FBOs and during flight.

“This is one of our most popular routes throughout the warmer months” said Gail Grimmett, Chief Experience Officer at Wheels Up.

The shuttle will operate one-way flights each Friday at 5 pm from HPN to ACK. Return flights will depart ACK for HPN each Sunday at 5 pm. Holiday weekends will operate on a special schedule departing Thursdays and returning Mondays.

Members will enjoy a concierge welcome service at HPN as part of the on-the-ground experience. The cost per seat on each leg of the shuttle flight is $795 and Members may book up to four seats per flight, pending availability. Wheels Up offers on-demand flights, membership programs, corporate solutions, aircraft management, whole aircraft sales, and commercial travel benefits through a strategic partnership with Delta Air Lines.

Through the Wheels Up app anyone can search, book, and fly. Wheels Up Connect, Core, and Business memberships bring such expansive services as flight sharing, empty-leg hot flights, shuttle flights, shared flights, signature Wheels Down events, and other benefits.
