OneJet says it will be transitioning its operations to a fully owned 135 operating certificate over the next eight weeks and during that transition, services are being suspended. The airline says the result will be a more "robust and reliance" operation, going forward.

Sales are expected to re-open on October 1. Customers with existing tickets are being referred to OneJet's website.

OneJet began offering daily, round-trip flights between Buffalo and Albany in February. The new service was welcomed by local businesspeople and elected officials, who hadn't been able to fly directly to the capital since 2011.
