Expanding its Northeast network, Cape Air will begin offering year-round service between Boston Logan International Airport and Portland International Jetport, effective September 18, 2019.
Four daily round-trips will connect the major cities making travel for both business and leisure faster and more efficient.
“We are thrilled to have the opportunity to expand our service in Maine by offering Portland passengers the option to connect to Boston year round,” said Linda Markham, President of Cape Air. “Connectivity is at the core of what we do, we are passionate about connecting communities, so delivering a means of faster, more efficient access between two quintessential New England cities is something we are proud to offer.”
As a Jet Blue partner, Cape Air’s new daily service in Portland will enable area travelers to tap into the Jet Blue network throughout the year.
Additional airline relationships provide passengers with added convenience and flexibility when connecting to over 500 flights and 100 additional markets, from Cape Air’s Boston hub.
“We are delighted to welcome Cape Air to our airline lineup and are pleased to have non-stop service to Boston return for the first time in over a decade,” said Paul Bradbury, Airport Director, Portland International Jetport. “This announcement marks the return of intra-New England air service for the Portland International Jetport. With Cape Air’s interline agreements, our passengers will have access not just to all of Cape Air’s destinations out of Boston but also nearly 100 additional markets out of Boston. We look forward to this service and are hopeful its success will allow for additional non-stop intra-New England markets in the future.”
Daily roundtrip service will be aboard Cape Air’s Cessna 402, which is a nine passenger, twin-engine aircraft. Cape Air currently offers daily flights from Boston to Augusta, Bar Harbor and Rockland, Maine.
