Our friend, Governor Schweitzer, is in New York City this week promoting Montana tourism: “go to Montana to see how it was.”
His friend, David Letterman, hosted him on the Late Show last night.
Of great interest to me was Governor Schweitzer’s announcement of the direct from New York to somewhere in Montana flight, which I had heard rumored. I am a frequent commuter from our home near New York City to SRS Crisafulli’s manufacturing plant in Eastern Montana. The idea of a direct flight is appealing.
So, the answer is...
Starting on June 9, and running on Saturdays through September 1, for $600 on United Airlines, you can catch a flight from Newark, New Jersey (airport code EWR) at 8:30 in the morning Eastern Time, and be in Bozeman, Montana (airport code BZN) at 10:15 am Mountain Time, a four hour forty-two minutes elapsed time direct flight. The following Saturday, if you get to the Bozeman airport by noon, you will be back in Newark by 6:00, a four hour elapsed time flight, with good tail winds.
