ALBANY, N.Y. — There’s a new passenger air service between Albany and Buffalo.

OneJet launched the service Tuesday with twice-daily, round-trip flights on weekdays.

OneJet CEO Matthew Maguire told the Times-Union of Albany that flight times are 35 minutes from wheels up to wheels down, shaving significant time off a cross-state drive.

Fares are expected to be in the $150 to $180 range each way.

Previous service on the route had ended in 2010.
