Rutland, Vermont's, regional airport could soon be offering departures for White Plains, New York.
The Rutland Herald reports Altius, a charter airline based in Syracuse, New York, has applied to the U.S. Department of Transportation to establish regular passenger routes to the area.
The airline hopes to start with flights between the Rutland Southern Vermont Regional Airport in Clarendon and White Plains on nine-passenger, single-engine planes.
Altius Managing Director Toni Drummond says the company is in its planning stages and could possibly have the route running by the end of summer.
Rutland Region Chamber of Commerce Vice President Thomas Donahue said the route would be a welcome addition.
Donahue says the airline would help make Rutland more accessible to New Yorkers for business and skiing.
