This fall, Boston travelers will have more choices when traveling to Portland, Maine, when Cape Air begins a daily, non-stop service to the city.
The Hyannis-based regional airline announced Tuesday that it will begin offering four daily round trips between Logan International Airport and Portland International Jetport, beginning Sept. 18.
The service, which will be offered year-round, will take 46 minutes one way, and passengers will fly on the company’s Cessna 402, which is a nine-passenger, twin-engine aircraft.
“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, in a press release. “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.”
Cape Air serves more than 35 cities in the U.S. and Caribbean. The airline currently offers daily flights from Boston to Augusta, Bar Harbor, and Rockland in Maine.
