Is there any potential for Cape Air to expand their respective regional networks? For example, could there potentially be flights out of Hanscom to the Cape, Nantucket, or Martha's Vineyard? Or, what about SJU to SLU or SVD? Thanks for your thoughts and comments.

Hanscom to the Cape, Nantucket, or Martha's Vineyard?

Not only would flying from BED to the Cape and the islands be redundant, the nimbys would kill it before the service even started.



Doors open, right hand side, next stop is Springfield.

BED had service with a B99 operator (can't remember who...and it might have been C99's) in the 1979 -1981 timeframe....and your right...the NIMBY's were screaming then and would all over again.

Written as I sit here seeing 8 Cape Air 402's on the ramp at BOS! They really are a great little outfit.

ALB-SLK... was the last route flown on CommutAir's ALB Hub. It still needs to be picked up. They've talked about seasonal service between ALB-HYA.

I have always thought that the following would be a good schedule for CapeAir..

MEO (Outer Banks, NC) - 4x RDU, 3x GSO, 2x ILM, 1x EWN, 3x RIC, 2x ORF

EWN (New Bern) - 3x RDU, 1x ORF, 1x MEO, 2x GSO

RDU - 4x MEO, 3x EWN, 3x ORF, 2x AVL, 2x RIC, 3x CHS, 2x CAE

GSO - 2x ILM, 2x AVL, 3x GSO, 2x EWN, 2x ORF, 2x AVL, 1x RIC, 1x CHS

Just do the entire Carolinas routing.. But just a thought.. I do think people would connect to CapeAir to the OuterBanks..

I'd like to see the B6 codeshare expand to all of the destinations in BOS.

For 9K, I'd like to see BOS-BID and maybe PVD-BID, if New England Air isn't interested in doing that. Maybe somewhere in CT to the Cape?

They could do some expanding in Florida as well, like MCO to EYW and add flights around the keys.

Airlines that flew from BED included Mohawk (BE-99s in the late 1980s) and Shuttle America (Dash-8s).

Others?

I believe there was an airline flying Convairs to New York quite a while back called Cosmopolitan. The Convairs were the piston version, not the turbo prop.

I think you could maybe even add FAY, MYR and maybe even Jacksonville NC, Savannah or Hilton Head into it to get better coverage with maybe some traffic from the bases. And you know, ROA might even work to get connections too since lots of people in that area drive to GSO, RIC or RDU for lower fares.

Wow, what a memory...

I think I remember seeing this company's planes at BOS, too, circa '81 or '82.



Anyway, as for Cape Air, they need a few Dash-8s or something. This whole single-pilot,C402 formula... It has served them well for a long time. But....

I think there was another thread on here that discussed how Cape Air is/may be looking for new planes; it is true that most, if not all the planes, they fly are getting up there in age, although they seem to do their job well. The fact that there has only been one fatality in Cape Air's history (last year) speaks to how well these planes have been maintained.

Thanks, that's what I was looking for! Is Cape Air the largest commercial/scheduled operator of Cessnas (at least currently)?
