Tailwind Air announces seaplane service from Manhattan to Provincetown, MA via Boston Harbor

Tailwind Air has made this announcement:

Tailwind Air has announced a new destination, creating the fastest way to Provincetown, MA.

Travelers may now enjoy a nonstop seaplane flight directly from Boston Harbor’s Fan Pier Marina (IATA Code: BNH) to Provincetown Harbor, MA (below). Flights from Boston Harbor are approximately 35 minutes from dock to dock and include complimentary water taxi/launch service to and from the seaplane.

Tailwind will also offer nonstop and one-stop flights from Manhattan’s Skyport Marina at East 23rd Street to Provincetown Harbor, MA.  Scheduled summer service begins May 25, 2022 and operates through September 5, 2022.

While Tailwind Air’s turboprop seaplane fleet is young, less than five years on average, seaplane travel certainly is not. The Manhattan Skyport opened in 1936, and has been hosting popular seaplane travel for decades. For nearly 100 years, seaplane operations have been part of the core transportation landscape of maritime cities such as Seattle, Miami, and Vancouver.

Boston Harbor–Manhattan flights, and a complete schedule for all flights operated by Tailwind Air, can be found below.

With the addition of Provincetown Harbor, Tailwind Air now serves four destinations from its Boston Harbor base. Manhattan is served three times daily seven days a week. Plymouth, MA is served daily. One-stop same plane service to East Hampton (HTO) is also available.

Route Map:

With the addition of Provincetown Harbor, Tailwind Air now serves eight destinations from its Manhattan base. Manhattan destinations are: Boston, East Hampton, Sag Harbor, Shelter Island, Montauk, Provincetown, Plymouth, and Bridgeport.
