Qatar Airways has partnered with Cape Air to provide passengers with greater connectivity when traveling between the U.S. and to more than 150 destinations in the airline’s network.
The new interline agreement will be taking effect from November 12, 2018.
The partnership allows Qatar Airways passengers to tap into Cape Air’s growing short-haul regional network that currently serves 34 cities including popular U.S. vacation destinations such as Nantucket and Martha’s Vineyard.
Qatar Airways Senior Vice President of the Americas, Eric Odone, said:
“We are excited to welcome Cape Air to our list of interline partners as it provides enhanced connectivity and increased convenience to our passengers traveling throughout the Americas during their journey with us. We are proud to be one of the leading global connectors – this strategic partnership further allows Qatar Airways to expand its regional footprint and offers Cape Air passengers an easier way to travel to new leisure and business locales within our network of over 150 exciting destinations.”
“The core of the commitments we make to our customers is being able to connect their communities,” said Cape Air President, Linda Markham. “This new partnership with Qatar is an example of how as airlines we can work together to open up countless economic and leisure opportunities, and also bring communities a little bit closer. We are thrilled to be able to expand our connectivity, and align with a partner that shares that priority.”
Qatar Airways’ strong commitment to the U.S. market has been seen with the launch of ten gateways over the past decade. Qatar Airways operates to Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, New York, Philadelphia, and Washington, D.C.
Now in its 29th year, Cape Air is one of the largest independent regional airlines in the United States, serving 34 cities in the US and the Caribbean. The employee-owned company, based in Hyannis, Massachusetts, has grown from three flights a day between Provincetown and Boston in 1989 to a fleet of 83 Cessna 402’s, 400 flights a day and service to over 500,000 passengers annually.
