Regional Caribbean airline Cape Air is relaunching its service from San Juan, Puerto Rico to Nevis, the carrier said this week.
The airline will be reinstating its daily year-round flights from San Juan to Nevis beginning Nov. 22.
“Cape Air has been invested in the Caribbean region for three decades,” said Linda Markham, President of Cape Air. “A significant portion of our business is focused on connecting communities to hub cities, and providing convenient access to flights on our partner carriers, including JetBlue and United. We are grateful to be able to play a part in driving Nevis’ tourism economy,” she added.
Cape Air will be operating two round trip flights every day.
Enthusiasm for the relaunch of the San Juan to Nevis service is shared by representatives from the island’s government, tourism and hospitality sectors. “We are delighted to welcome Cape Air back to Nevis and intend to partner with them to ensure that their service to Nevis is as excellent as it has always been,” said Honorable Mark Brantley, Premier of Nevis and Minister of Foreign Affairs for St Kitts and Nevis.
Cape Air, which is based in Massachusetts, operates flights around the Caribbean out of a hub in San Juan.
