Tailwind, which operates a fleet of Cessna turboprop planes that can land on water or land, says it will start service between Logan and a seaport dock at East 23 Street in Manhattan on June 5.
Tailwind is charging $999 for round-trip flights, which will leave the East River for Boston once a day on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays and return from Logan on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. Included at no additional cost are free water, soda and beer. Each plane can carry eight passengers.
The company says a flight will take an hour and 15 minutes, slightly longer than traditional jet trips to LaGuardia, but without all the annoying traffic problems.
The company adds it hopes to eventually start and end flights right in Boston Harbor. Last year, somebody tested out a seaplane in the harbor.
