New England Air Transport was an airline based in Maine, launched in August, 2008. The airline, geared towards business travelers, tourists, and those seeking medical treatment, was focused on air service between Aroostook and Cumberland counties, the northernmost and southernmost parts of the state, respectively. It marked the first time there has been intra-Maine air service in nearly a decade. The airline hope to expand to Eastern Canada in the future.[1][2]

On October 18, 2009, David A. Fernald, the President of New England Air Transport, announced in a press release that the airline would be suspending operations, stating that "until we come out of this current economic downturn it is unlikely that cash from operations will be sufficient to support continued scheduled flight service".[3] Fernald announced in the statement that, if able to reorganize, they will continue to provide charter service.
