Beacon Makes Exclusive Semi-Private Flights Between New York and Boston

Beacon is revolutionizing the concept of private flights for the business traveler.

The air travel service came up with a concept that is a blend between private flights and shared travel. For a $2,000 monthly membership fee, Beacon club members can take unlimited flights between Boston and New York. Members need only give a Beacon concierge 15 minutes' notice before a flight's departure time to book a seat on one of Beacon's private flights. The service boasts a streamlined check-in and security service, so club members essentially only have to walk through a metal detector and identify themselves to get on their flight. Beacon's small planes seat seven travelers at a time, although they're actually converted 15-seat cabins, allowing for plenty of leg room.

The service is perfect for business people who have to fly frequently, and value the extreme comfort and efficiency of an exclusive flight club.
