Nantucket Airlines

ACK Air's Story

We’re all about this island


Since our first flight between Boston and Provincetown in 1989, Cape Air has provided year-round service to some of the most beautiful destinations in the world.

Shortly after that first flight, we expanded our service across southern New England to Hyannis, Nantucket, New Bedford, Martha’s Vineyard and Providence, RI. In 1993, we began offering flights between South Florida and the Keys and in 1998, our Caribbean route took flight. Cape Air merged with Nantucket Airlines in 1994. In 2004 we began service in Micronesia and added 3 new aircraft to our fleet, ATR 42s. These aircraft seat 46 passengers and serve our routes between Guam, Rota and Saipan.

Now, Cape Air operates a fleet of over 64 Cessna 402’s with up to 850 flights per day during high season. Last year Cape Air carried over 650,000 passengers, making us the largest independent regional airline in the United States.

Wherever we fly, Cape Air and Nantucket Airlines are recognized for our outstanding customer service and convenient  flights. We have ticket and baggage agreements with most major airlines which means smooth connections and money-saving joint fares for our passengers.

As an employee owned company, and on behalf of our owners, we hope you enjoy your trip on Cape Air and we aim, as our mantra encourages, to MOCHA HAGoTDI. It means to Make our Customers Happy and Have a Good Time Doing It.
