Wow! Very nice!! Lets hope those route will done extremely very well. There is no competitions at all. Is that HPN a slot-controlled? Can't have expansion more new route from HPN? B6 has already flies JFK, BOS, MCO, FLL and TPA.

Perhaps if Nassau is successful, Aruba and Bermuda may be added since they're the only other int'l destinations with pre-clearance other than Canada. Domestically, Las Vegas and Sarasota would be good choices too for HPN.

Besides DUB and SNN, you mean. But I doubt we'll see JetBlue flying there anytime soon...and certainly not from HPN!

Right. Only US pre-clearance from Canada, Ireland, Aruba, Bahamas, Bermuda and no one anything else.

I'm kinda surprised at the timing of this flight. HPN is an absolute zoo between 7 and 9 already, and this will be adding in another flight during that period! -- Though I wonder if B6 will be dropping service to a city, or changing their schedule around to add this flight in during that period.

Tomorrow's schedule has 12 flights departing HPN during the 2 hour window of 7:00am-9:00am. This may seem like nothing for a seasoned hub traveler, but anyone who's waited for a flight at HPN will know that the waiting area at HPN is but the size of three typical-sized gates, and seating is at an absolute premium.

There's no doubt these flights will do well out of HPN, because of its ease of use, and location in the wealthy Westchester/Fairfield/Even Northern NJ market, but I hope people can find a seat to wait for these flights!

Please check your facts before posting.

B6 serves the following cities from HPN:

FLL, RSW, MCO, TPA, PBI


B6 does NOT service the following cities from HPN:

BOS, JFK





Should you wish to get to BOS from HPN, a one-stop TSA-Free Flight on 9K would be your best bet.

As for JFK... B6 will get you there the cheapest (though, with a connection in MCO!)

The really need to do something with the seating area at HPN. I think calling it a zoo is being kind. I imagine the local community would block any sort of construction on the site. This place needs some serious updating. I love flying out of there though because its alot easier to get to than JFK, LGA or BDL.

Nick, I live in Westchester and I pay extra just to fly from HPN. I don't see why they don't push the waiting area out towards the tarmac. It seems there is space to fit a 757 on there but only A320's and E190's are ever around.
