Cape Air, one of the nation’s largest regional airlines, will begin seasonal service to Block Island, R.I., beginning on May 22. Cape Air will offer daily flights between Block Island Airport (BID) and T.F. Green Airport (PVD) and between BID and Westchester County Airport (HPN).
Passengers also have the option to take Cape Air’s ground transportation from Westchester County Airport to 35th Street and 8th Avenue in midtown Manhattan, from T.F. Green and Westchester County Airports.
“After several years of collaboration with the Rhode Island Airport Corporation, we are thrilled to be able to start seasonal, scheduled service to Block Island. Cape Air specializes in connecting passengers to some of the most desirable destinations in the U.S. and Caribbean,” said Linda Markham, president, Cape Air.
“Block Island passengers on Cape Air will have access to connecting service on other carriers and commuter rail service to Providence and Boston via the convenience of T. F. Green Airport. Cape Air is a valued travel partner, offering seasonal service to the Cape and Islands for over 15 years. This additional service is, hopefully, an indication of future growth,” said Kelly Fredericks, president and CEO of the Rhode Island Airport Corporation (RIAC).
