The U.P.’s exclusive Lansing Air Shuttle

Upcoming Shuttle Travel Dates:

Please Call for Current Shuttle Schedule

(Do you have a need for a different Shuttle Travel Date or Destination?  Call us!)

Northern Airways Lansing Shuttle was developed to provide same-day round trip travel to Lansing with a generous 6+ hours time allotment for conducting business – and still get travelers home in time for dinner; the kid’s hockey game; or the symphony performance.

The time-saving, cost and realized value of Northern Airways Lansing Shuttle (in comparison to driving a vehicle and/or taking a commercial airline) gives you and your travelers peace of mind.  It’s the peace of mind you need to conduct meaningful business – rather than watching striped road lines all day or being subjected to taking your shoes off at the TSA screening line.  Instead, arrive 15 minutes before departure.  Walk in.  Walk on.  Wheels up!

Once onboard, enjoy the convenience of a private flight with the assurances of safety, security and a comfortable environment.  We’ll get you there, and back to your family knowing you’ve had a productive day; a pleasant journey; and plenty of rest.

Go ahead – slip your shoes off, if you wish.  We don’t mind.
