Island Air had a Sunday-Only flight between White Plains and Newark (I assume the flight continued to Atlantic City-Bader, which was the airline's base).
Command and Brockway Air had a pretty thorough schedule between White Plains and Poughkeepsie which was a 20 minutes flight.
An airline named "Air Vectors" flew twice daily on weekdays from Newburgh to Poughkeepsie on a Piper, this was a 10 minute flight that connected to literally nothing at SWF as that was the only air service Newburgh had at the time and at POU the flights continued onto Binghampton. A handful of offline connections were available at POU, but if you really wanted to fly on the Colgan Air flight to IAD, you'd think someone would just drive to POU instead of booking an offline connection SWF-POU-IAD.
I feel like I'm just scratching the surface here. Why did so many of these seemingly pointless extremely short commuter routes that connected to nothing exist?
