Because, apparently, you’re worth such extravagance.
As many New Yorkers already know, this year was the inaugural year of StndAir‘s seaplane flights to the Hamptons. Departing from Kips Bay’s Skyports Marina on Thursday and Friday afternoons with flights returning to the city on Sunday evening and Monday mornings, Andre Balazs, the brainchild of this luxe way to land in East Hampton (and head of the hip Standard Hotel), decided that seaplanes, rosé, and Swedish fish meant chic convenience. We agree, but we also sorta love the idea of the private helicopter ride to the Hamptons.
