Air New England: Systemwide Routes, 1975

A small section of the United States was a world unto itself in the days of commuter carriers such as Air New England, which offered flights across four northeastern states, as well as New York (presumably LaGuardia), midway through its lifespan.

Boston Logan was the major hub. Other regional airports, such as Manchester, New Hampshire, or Bangor, Maine, and T.F. Greene State Airport in Rhode Island, as well as the entire state of Connecticut, were not covered by the system, although these are the region's principal secondary airports. Some of these were served in later years, and the airline reached as far as Baltimore and Cleveland before its demise in 1981.

The links within southeastern Massachusetts, the Cape and the Islands, mimic a present-day Cape Air.
