Cape Air to start flights in January

Announcement comes two weeks after company awarded EAS contract at Quincy Regional Airport

Cape Air says it will start offering Essential Air Service at Quincy Regional Airport early next year.

The airline announced Monday night that it will start providing service at Quincy Regional on January 8th. A statement says that Cape Air will offer daily, year-round flights to Lambert-St. Louis International Airport and Chicago O’Hare International Airport. The company was recommended to again provide flights out of Quincy by the City Council's Aeronautics Committee, and the Federal Aviation Administration made the formal announcement last month. Cape Air was selected, based in part on their two-year, $6.2 million proposal to the city. They were also selected due in part on public feedback during two late-July town hall meetings. Cape Air plans to offer 18 flights a week to both Chicago and St. Louis in new, 9-seat twin-engine planes. Their average ticket prices will start at $49 to St. Louis, and $69 to Chicago.

Cape Air says that reservations can be made now by visiting capeair.com or by calling 800-CAPE-AIR.
