Update: This airfare is no more.
Without going into the boring specifics, heh heh, there’s a move afoot to aid the Adirondack Regional Airport with some marketing help. Specifically this means helping Commutair – a Plattsburgh-based operator for Continental Connection – with promoting their bargain fare between Saranac Lake and Albany, NY.
$78 Round-trip !! Irregardless of who, or what, or why, that is a great deal. These are one-way flights of 40 minutes.
I’ve found this rate available through the end of March. A quick way to get up here for a weekend? Rental cars are available for as little as $38/day. Some hotels or resorts should jump on this with some packaging which included transportation… Anyway, things are so slow, I’ll bet most hoteliers would send out a ride for free.
1/17/07 – My buddy found a round-trip to Melbourne, Australia – leaving from Saranac Lake! It actually was the cheapest option we could find – $1682 total.
Compare to Adirondack Trailways, Albany – Lake Placid $60.50 Round-trip, 4 hours each way.
