Streamline Air was an American regional-airline based at Hanscom Field in Bedford, Massachusetts. The airline commenced operations on April 4, 2011.[2] Streamline operated four daily flights between its two destinations. Streamline Air, LLC. was a subsidiary of Charter Air Transport. All flights offered by Streamline were designated by the Department of Transportation as Public Charters.

History[edit]

Streamline Air commenced operations on April 4, 2011. All flights were operated by Charter Air Transport, Inc. as a publicly sold air service. All flights were flown with the Embraer 120 regional airliner, seating 30. One draw of this unique service was complementary snacks and cocktails in-flight. The aircraft registered N651CT was painted especially to represent the new Streamline brand. The service structure was geared toward routine business travel, but the prospects of adding seasonal leisure destinations were a plan once the company grew. On September 15, 2012 Streamline Air ceased operations.

Destinations[edit]

Streamline Air offered weekday service between two destinations, Hanscom Field in Bedford, MA (as an alternative to the more congested Logan International Airport) and Trenton-Mercer Airport in Ewing, New Jersey, which is a reliever for the Philadelphia air travel market.[3] Effective September 14, 2012, Streamline ceased operations at Trenton-Mercer Airport.[4] Streamline was looking to add Pease Airport in Portsmouth, New Hampshire; but was unable to begin service as desired in September due to some aircraft and crew scheduling conflicts.[5]
