OneJet start Buffalo - Albany route and introduce new product.

OneJet, the airline that specialises in providing direct air routes between small and medium markets in the US have inaugurated a new nonstop service between Buffalo and Albany. This new route also marks the service introduction of OneJet's Plus product.

OneJet will now offer a twice-daily round-trip flight between Buffalo Niagara International Airport and Albany International Airport, the first direct flights between the two cities to be offered in more than seven years. Travellers had previously been forced to make the 280-mile trip by road taking some considerable time. 

The OneJet Plus service, which will be introduced to additional routes throughout 2018, provides passengers with expanded amenities onboard retrofitted ERJ 135 regional jet aircraft, including increased legroom, complimentary 4G high-speed Wi-Fi, streaming entertainment gate to gate and complimentary beer, wine and premium snacks.  Passengers also receive the same check-in conveniences that standard OneJet flights provide, including TSA Pre access for eligible travellers and valet plane-side baggage service.

The highly anticipated new route will serve as an important productivity tool for the region's business travellers, including OneJet launch customers M&T Bank and HealthNow New York Inc., which is the leading provider of health insurance plans for companies and individuals in Western New York.

"This is truly a historic day for the residents of Buffalo, Albany, and around the State," said Lieutenant Governor Kathy Hochul, who cut the ribbon before today's first flight. "This new service will provide New Yorkers with a quicker and more efficient way to travel and serve as yet another competitive advantage as we continue to draw more businesses to Upstate."

"We're thrilled to now be able to meet the demand for a convenient travel solution between Buffalo and Albany," said John D. Porcari, former U.S. Deputy Secretary of Transportation and senior adviser to OneJet. "This route will prove significant to the economy of Western New York as it will help regional travellers maximize their workdays and shrink their commute time to home to one hour or less." 

The OneJet Plus–branded ERJ135 aircraft offers a comfortable 30-seat cabin for the one-hour gate-to-gate service, with convenient morning and afternoon flights Monday through Friday.

OneJet opened its first base in Pittsburgh in May 2016 with two daily flights. The company now offers over 220 weekly flights to and from its operating bases in Pittsburgh and Milwaukee, as well as exclusive nonstop service to and from Albany, Buffalo, Cincinnati, Columbus, Hartford, Indianapolis, Kansas City, Louisville, Omaha, Palm Beach, Providence and Richmond.
