The airline issued this statement:
Boutique Air released a new schedule for flights from Massena International Airport (MSS) in Massena, NY to Boston Logan International Airport (BOS) in Boston, MA. Effective June 1, 2018, Boutique Air is now offering round trip flight service between Massena, NY and Boston, MA. Boutique Air will be retiring service in Albany, NY and Baltimore, MD on May 31, 2018.
“With this move, passengers will be able to fly into a major city,” said CEO Shawn Simpson. “Not only is Boston a great destination to visit with many historic sites, it’s also a quicker trip to an international airport.”
With the communities demand for service in Boston, Boutique Air took action and contacted the Department of Transportation to make the change possible. The DOT recognized the need for Massena to be connected to a metropolitan city and approved the request.
The Town of Massena voted unanimously to move service to Boston. They are excited to provide people the opportunity to be better connected. The availability to a large cosmopolitan area will strengthen the business climate by providing more resources and opportunity for business development. Members of the community are looking forward to quicker plane turnaround times and an increase of travel possibilities.
People from Montreal are interested in driving in to Massena to Boston for better access to international travel.
