American Airlines Will Now Fly To Cape Cod And Islands
Cape Air will be facing even more competition in 2024. American Airlines recently announced they will add flight routes, including Cape Cod.
“American Airlines is adding seven new routes next summer to give customers more ways to plan trips to hike rugged coastal mountains, watch whales breach in Canadian waters, or feel the sea breeze blow in on the shores of Cape Cod,” American Airlines said in a press release.
For the first time ever, Hyannis on Cape Cod will be an official American Airlines destination. Daily flights will be from New York’s LaGuardia Airport (LGA) and Washington’s Reagan National Airport (DCA). This is part of American Airlines’ six-city expansion.
“New service to Hyannis, expanded service from New York, and more international service grows the largest global network in the United States, connecting more cities than any other U.S. carrier, for a summer like no other,” said Brian Znotins, American Airline’s Senior Vice President of Network and Schedule Planning.
Plus Nantucket and Martha’s Vineyard
Cape Cod Gateway Airport shared the exciting news by posting an official announcement to their Facebook page. They said, “We’re thrilled to share that American Airlines is expanding its wings to Cape Cod, Nantucket, and Martha’s Vineyard with seasonal service from June through September!”
Bangor, Maine, Portland, Maine, and Halifax, Nova Scotia are among the other New England areas that American Airlines will begin to fly to, in addition to Cape Cod. These routes will also be direct from LaGuardia.
This news now gives travelers additional options instead of driving over the bridge (Cape) or opting for ferry services. American joins a select group of other airlines that fly directly to Cape Cod (including Jet Blue), although Cape Air is still expected to have the most frequent Hyannis service.
Flights to Hyannis will become available on October 23 via aa.com or their mobile app. Tickets for other routes went on sale yesterday. You can see the entire new schedule with the service start date here.
