Infrastructure Transportation New Hampshire is the gateway to northern New England with transportation connections that provide easy access to the rest of New England, the United States and the world. Air New Hampshire is ready to meet the needs of domestic and international passenger and cargo air service. The state is well served by 24 public airports. Passenger airline service is available at Manchester-Boston Regional Airport and Lebanon Municipal Airport. Manchester-Boston, the largest regional airport in New England, serviced over 3.7 million passengers in 2008. Passenger airlines serving Manchester include Air Canada, Delta, Continental, Southwest, United, and US Airways. Manchester-Boston Regional Airport is the third largest cargo airport in New England – behind Logan and Bradley. Air cargo carriers in Manchester include United Parcel Service (UPS), Federal Express (FedEx), Telford Aviation, Mountain Air Cargo and Wiggins Airways. Manchester is only 54 miles from Boston’s Logan International Airport where travelers can connect to major international flights out. Lebanon Municipal Airport is located along the Connecticut River valley on the border between Vermont and New Hampshire. Cape Air offers daily flights to Boston’s Logan International Airport. Highway New Hampshire is known for its well-maintained and extensive highway systems, with over 15,163 miles of classified public roads. The major Interstate highways that connect New Hampshire directly with Massachusetts, Maine and Vermont are routes 93, 95 and 89. Roads are surveyed every year to monitor their condition and are resurfaces strategically to address the road’s short- and long- term conditions. The majority of new construction projects in the state are allocated to areas that can improve the quality of the air, reduce congested roadways, provide alternative modes of travel and maintain timely reconstruction and maintenance.

Rail Similar to the interstate highway system, New Hampshire’s rail system connects directly with Massachusetts, Maine and Vermont. The five major freight rail operators in the state are Claremont Concord Railroad, Green Mountain Railroad, Guilford Transportation, St. Lawrence and Atlantic, and New England Central. St. Lawrence covers the northern part of the state and the rest of the operators cover from the west, east and southern areas. Passenger service in New Hampshire consists of the Amtrak Vermonter that stops in Claremont and other points in the Connecticut Valley and the Amtrak Downeaster serving Boston to Portland, Maine, with New Hampshire stops in Exeter, Durham and Dover. There is also a state effort on going to extend commuter service from Lowell to Boston, by extending the line to Nashua and other southern New Hampshire communities. Ocean Shipping New Hampshire has 18 miles of coastline that includes the Port of New Hampshire in Portsmouth, a deep water port for commercial traffic. The New Hampshire Port Authority is a full-service facility specializing in break bulk and dry bulk cargoes as well as heavy lifts, project cargoes and cruise ships. It is an active Foreign Trade Zone on seven acres of paved land. There is on-site rail, two berthing piers and a 56,000 square foot warehouse facility – all within 50 miles of Boston and Portland, Maine.

Manchester-Boston Regional Airport Strategically situated in the heart of New England, Manchester-Boston Regional Airport is located less than 50 miles north of Boston, Massachusetts and less than an hour's drive from the region's most popular ski areas, scenic seacoast beaches and peaceful lakefront resorts. During the past decade, the airport has dramatically improved airport facilities and infrastructure, and increased both passenger and cargo airline services. Manchester-Boston Regional Airport is now widely considered the premier airport in northern New England and a convenient alternative airport serving the greater Boston area. Easy access, competitive airfares, ample affordable parking and a growing schedule of non-stop and direct jet service make Manchester the airport of choice in New England.

Manchester-Boston Regional Airport is served by: Air Canada, Continental/Continental Express, Delta/Delta Connection, Southwest Airlines, United/United Express, US/US Airways Express.

Cargo Airlines:

A good indication of the strength of a region's economy is the amount of air cargo that passes through its airport. Manchester-Boston Regional Airport is New England's third largest cargo airport, processing more air cargo each year than all other regional airports in New England combined.

Over the past decade, UPS and FedEx have all dramatically increased their presence at Manchester Airport, building new facilities and increasing the size and frequency of their aircraft equipment. Quantem Aviation Services, the cargo-handling agent for Manchester's scheduled commercial airlines, has experienced steady growth as well.

Looking to the future, the airport is planning for several cargo-related improvements -- construction of new cargo facilities and expansion of cargo aprons -- during the next decade.

General Aviation:

Manchester-Boston Regional Airport is proud to have one of the finest general aviation facilities in the country. Wiggins Airways, the airport's fixed-base operator (FBO), operates an impressive 96,000 square foot general aviation complex, consisting of 73,000 square feet of hangar and operations area and a three-story, 23,000 square foot terminal. This state-of-the-art complex boasts of an executive passenger lounge and conference rooms, pilot and crew lounge, flight planning area and customer service facilities.

As the airport's FBO, Wiggins Airways provides aircraft fueling, deicing, maintenance and avionics services for commercial airlines as well as corporate and other private general aviation aircraft.

Taxes and Business Climate New Hampshire is a low cost state in a high cost region. New Hampshire offers one of the lowest tax burdens in the country for business owners and their workers. They take home more of their income than in many other states. And there are a number of financial resources for business owners.

Taxes No sales tax No use tax No broad base income tax No capital gains tax No inventory tax No higher assessment for commercial or industrial real estate Loan guarantees Tax exempt financing for manufacturers

Even with short-term tax abatements, credits, exemptions or cash subsidies offered by other states, the state of New Hampshire is still often less expensive as a place to do business. Sooner or later, the recipient of subsidies becomes subject to the taxation necessary to generate all future subsidies. Instead, New Hampshire believes that less taxes and smaller government are better forms of incentives in the long-term.

If the employer cannot allow thirty minutes the employee must be paid if they are eating and working at the same time.

Quality of Life All states say they have “quality of life,” but the fact is that New Hampshire is small enough to support a balanced quality of life without sitting in traffic for two hours. Employees and company owners choose to live in New Hampshire because there are excellent school systems, high quality health care, low crime rates, sophisticated technologies, clean air, mountains, oceans, lakes and historical and cultural resources, and commuting to work takes on average only 30 to 45 minutes. New Hampshire is also close to major metropolitan areas; Boston is a one-hour commute by automobile and New York City is a four and a half hour commute.

Social Surveys New Hampshire has been highly rated in national social surveys. New Hampshire was recently ranked the third “Most Livable State” by CQ Press. New Hampshire ranked this high because of factors such as its low crime rate, reasonable cost of living and highly educated and healthy population. The table below lists some of the quality of life categories in which New Hampshire has ranked high.

Housing Costs Despite a softening real estate and rental market, New Hampshire's citizens continue to face a significant housing affordability challenge. Property taxes, and other costs associated with keeping a family housed, have increased substantially in the past year. These associated expenses have had the effect of raising the overall cost of housing for both renters and home owners, thus continuing the challenge of affordability for Granite State residents. Although rents and home prices have recently stabilized or even fallen slightly, there is still a substantial affordability gap between household incomes and housing costs for most low and moderate income New Hampshire families.
