NEW SHOREHAM, R.I. (WPRI) — Beginning on May 22, just before the start of Memorial Day Weekend, Cape Air will offer daily flights between Block Island Airport and T.F. Green Airport.

“Flights from T.F. Green Airport to Block Island will soon become a reality. 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).

Block Island has a short runway, which limits the type of aircraft that can land there. Cape Air has acquired Britten-Norman Islanders, which is a nine passenger, high-wing, twin-engine aircraft with the capability to land on short runways.

Cape Air will also offer service between Block Island Airport and Westchester County Airport in New York.

Passengers can book their flights to Block Island now by visiting capeair.com, or by calling 800-CAPE-AIR.
