" Leave New York at 2:30 p. m.; due at Newport at 4 p. m.," is the schedule published for the first of the flights of the New York-Newport Air Service, Inc. This new service will cut down the time required to make the trip from six hours (by railroad) to 90 minutes.

Beginning June 29, six flights will be made each weekend until September 1. The fare per passenger will be $30, either way.

Vincent Astor and T. Suffern Tailer are the committee in charge for the underwriters.
