Just in time for summer vacation, Breeze Airways has announced five new destinations flying out of the Hudson Valley.

Hudson Valley travelers are extremely fortunate to have many options when it comes to planning a trip. While shopping for airfare, vacationers can book flights out of any of the major New York City airports and Albany, which are all within reasonable driving distance. For even more convenience, Stewart International Airport and Westchester County Airport are both extremely close to home, saving extra travel time and the expense of parking.

While these smaller regional airports are more convenient, they don't always have as many options as the larger airports. However, that could be about to change for many people planning summer getaways.
