What is Air New England?

Air New England is an FAA Certified, Part 135 On-Demand Charter Operator.   We have been in business since 2010 and are based at Fort Lauderdale Executive Airport and Portland International Jetport.  We offer both private and shared charter to numerous destinations in the U.S., Caribbean, and Canada.


Who can charter a plane and what does it mean?

Anyone can charter an aircraft.  A “private charter” is where you charter the entire aircraft with specific destination and departure time.   A “shared charter” is where you share the cost of the aircraft with other passengers who are traveling on the same route as yourself.


Are all taxes and fees included in the quoted price?

Yes, all taxes and fees are included in the quoted price.  When traveling to some destinations outside the United States there may be certain customs overtime fees and others that may not be included in the quoted price but our staff will notify you of this prior to your flight.


How early do I need to arrive at the airport?

You may arrive 10-15 minutes prior to your flight.  Relax!


Will I need my passport?

Yes, all passengers must have a valid passport to travel to and from the United States. Without this identification, you will not be allowed to board the aircraft. A driver’s license and birth certificate are no longer sufficient for traveling to and from the Bahamas. Citizens of non-U.S. countries may have additional entry requirements for both the U.S. and the Bahamas, such as visas and notarized authorizations. For information on U.S. entry requirements, we please visit www.travel.state.gov.


Are there restrictions on what I can bring to the Bahamas?

Per Bahamian Customs absolutely no fruits or vegetables are allowed to be brought into the country.  You may bring one liter per person duty free, one liter of hard liquor, and four bottles of wine.


Do you allow pets on-board?

Yes, you are welcome to bring your pet(s)!  Please advise us prior to your flight so that we may better accommodate you.   Your pet must be confined to an FAA-approved carrier for the duration of the flight.

PLEASE NOTE: Pet owner is responsible for ALL PAPERWORK required by country of origin and destination.
