Skip I-95 traffic and take a plane ride overlooking the gorgeous Florida coast instead. Fly the Whale, a small commercial airline featuring small plane charter flights, is opening up a new service taking customers from Fort Pierce to Tallahassee and soon to the Bahamas.
Starting January 8th, Fly the Whale will debut flights from the Treasure Coast International Airport on St. Lucie Boulevard. Flights will depart on Mondays at 8 a.m. and return at 4 p.m. On Thursdays flights leave at 3 p.m. and return at 5:30 p.m. The trip from Fort Pierce to Tallahassee will take 1 hour and 42 minutes... as opposed to about 5 and a half hours driving the interstate. If you live in Jupiter, it is over 6 hours to get to Tallahassee, if you wanted to watch the FSU Seminole game for example, and it would be much quicker to drive 40 minutes to the airport and hop on the plane.
The planes are 8-seaters, low noise, with plenty of cargo space, and offer great views from every spot. The airline will also offer flights out of Fort Pierce to the Grand Bahamian Island soon- Fly the Whale is just waiting approval from the Bahamian government and are confident it will be a quick process. Flights from Fort Pierce to Tallahassee cost $325.43 one-way. For more information or to book now, click here.
