Skybus Takes You To Free Downtown WiFi
Let's be real. Skybus does not fly to Boston. It takes at least one click on Skybus' website for them to admit that "Boston" is actually Portsmouth, NH. To be fair, Newark Airport is in a separate state from New York City, and we most definitely consider flying into Newark as flying into New York. But this is way more of a stretch. Hey, at least it's not Bellingham, WA, which Skybus brands as "Seattle" despite the 90-mile distance and better proximity to Canada.
But while playing with Skybus fares and investigating its creative airports, we did find one advantage to the "Boston" situation. Parking at Portsmouth International Airport is freakin' free, dude! That's short term and long term parking. To compare, economy long term parking at Boston Logan Airport is $16 per day.
Another reason to like Portsmouth? Free WiFi downtown. Then again, downtown Portsmouth does not equal downtown Boston, but it's a start.
