Cape Cod Gateway Airport (HYA), is thrilled to announce the return of Southern Airways Express. The airline plans to fly nonstop to Nantucket Memorial Airport (ACK). The airline will serve our region starting with daily flights to/from Nantucket and the potential for other routes in the future. Flight times are being finalized now with a planned June 16, 2022 start.
According to Airport Manager, Katie Servis, “This is perfect timing for Southern Airways Express flights to begin again at Cape Cod Gateway Airport. This will provide fast and easy air service to the center of Cape Cod for visitors, residents, and business travelers and just in time for the busy summer season. We will notify the public as soon as the tickets are for sale.”
“Southern Airways is happy to announce our return to the Hyannis-Nantucket market, effective Thursday June 16, 2022, with four daily roundtrips from Cape Cod Gateway Airport to Nantucket Memorial Airport,” said Mark Cestari, Chief Commercial Officer for Southern Airways. “The new flights will be operated in roomy Cessna Caravan turboprop aircraft which feature, large windows, roomy interiors, plenty of cargo space for large items and two-pilot operation on all flights. One-way fares on the quick 22-minute flights will begin at $99.00 each way.”
“Southern will offer four roundtrip flights Monday through Friday and three on Saturday and Sunday,” said Cestari. “In addition to offering a fast and easy alternative to the ferry, Southern will offer special fares for Cape businesses commuting their team members to busy Nantucket.
