Flight Cancelled? Not If You Are On A Private Jet!

#Snowmageddon2015 #Blizzardof2015 is here. Watching the news some 5,000 commercial airline flights have been cancelled today and 6,000 more will be tomorrow.  But not everyone is getting snowed in.  A quick check of flight tracking website Flightaware.com and airport websites show massive cancellations at New York’s JFK, LaGuardia and Newark airports (see below).

However at Teterboro, an airport exclusively serving private aviation Flightaware.com shows flights arriving and departing and the map was relatively full of private jets coming and going. The same could be said for Boston’s Hanscom Field, another general aviation dedicated airport (bottom picture) where one smart Ultra High Net Worth traveler was headed for Ocean Reef Club earlier this afternoon.

Back to New York, while at Newark Liberty International Airports reports said cots were being set up for those who would be stranded overnight, a lucky Super Rich group were wheels up at 6:47 PM from Teterboro destination Santa Monica, California.  Current weather?  70 degrees and sunny.
