Tradewind Aviation has notched a win against the big airlines. The Connecticut-based operator of Pilatus PC-12s and Citation CJ3s was rated fifth on this year’s Conde Nast Traveler Readers’ Choice list of best U.S. airlines.
Tradewind offers a regional jet card program on its fleet of PC-12s. It also offers by-the-seat scheduled private flights on the single-engine turboprops. And it offers both the CJ3s on PC-12s on the charter market.
Its scheduled flights span the Northeast U.S., mainly from Westchester County Airport and Teterboro to Rhode Island, Cape Cod resorts, and Vermont.
In the Caribbean, it operates flights connecting San Juan to Anguilla and St. Barts.
In this year’s Readers’ Choice voting, Tradewind took the fifth spot. Hawaiian Airlines was the winner, followed by Alaska Airlines, Delta Air Lines, and JetBlue.
