LEBANON, N.H., Dec. 27 (UPI) -- A New Hampshire airline is offering $12 flights to New York City, less than the cost of a ride from JFK to midtown -- which is included in the deal, too.

Cape Air, based in Lebanon, N.H., is offering the deal for the rest of the year in an effort to boost ridership at the Lebanon Airport.

If the airport exceeds 10,000 passengers this year it will gain access to an additional $850,000 in funding from the Federal Aviation Administration, WMUR-TV, Manchester, N.H. reported Thursday. They additional funding would allow the airport to upgrade runways and perform other maintenance.

The airport was less than 50 passengers shy of reaching the 10,000 passenger goal Thursday.

All told, for less than the cost of lunch, residents in Lebanon can get from there to Manhattan in 2 1/2 hours, including a ride from the airport. The $12 cost for the airfare covers taxes and fees - -the flights themselves are free.

Cape Air is also offering the $12 fare to Boston's Logan Airport, WMUR said.

The deal ends Monday.
