One day Andre Balazs is going to let me sit right up there in the cockpit as we zoom past the dreadful weekend i-95, over your head and into paradise. This it seems are the goodies waiting for you when you take the Stndard Air experience, which had its inaugural launch this past Friday.
As the press kit states: The Seaplane is an extension of The Standard’s unique culture that delivers a “luxury” experience at an affordable price with a playful flight experience that includes rosé, Swedish Fish and a Standard flight greeter at departure and arrival.
Well there’s only one way to find out I say- and that’s to catch Stndard Air, which departs from downtown Standard Hotel quarters and arrives at the pristine shores of Shelter Island or where you will be greeted at Sunset Beach, Andre’s glam hotel.
And there’s this courtesy of the WSJ:
The plane can travel within a 300-mile area of New York, and it can be chartered to go to places like Martha’s Vineyard ($4,875), Provincetown ($5,575) or Montauk ($3,275). Through the summer, it will make regularly scheduled stops in East Hampton for $495, and Shelter Island for $595. There is also something slightly confusing called an online Flight Board where individuals can book tickets for off-peak flights for as low as $30 a seat. Small pets are welcome on the plane, luggage allowance is 20 pounds and no golf clubs are permitted.
Shouldn’t you be living in paradise too?
