eTN Staff Writer  Mar 31, 2010

Beginning April 6, 2010, due to the launch of a marketing partnership between target="_blank">Cape Air and American Airlines, passengers will be able to use American Airlines tickets to fly between Lambert-St. Louis International Airport and Cape Girardeau, Missouri; Quincy, Illinois; and Marion, Illinois when connecting with another American Airlines flight at Lambert-St. Louis.

"Our new Midwest operation is already a proven success, and this partnership with American Airlines is the perfect complement to our frequent, convenient and reliable service in the region," said Cape Air president Dan Wolf.

"Cape Air has consistently shown their commitment to restoring long-awaited reliable, safe air service to Marion, Quincy, and Cape Girardeau, Missouri," said US Senator Dick Durbin (D-IL). "Thanks to the efforts of Cape Air, American Airlines, and local leaders, travelers now have a convenient way to connect from St. Louis to their final destinations."

Through the Cape Air-American Airlines marketing partnership, American Airlines has placed its code on flights operated by Cape Air, making it possible for customers to book travel on a single American Airlines itinerary. Customers enjoy easy one-stop shopping through or by calling 1-800-433-7300. On their day of travel, customers benefit from the convenience of receiving boarding passes for their entire itinerary upon check-in, one-stop baggage check and transfer, and same-concourse connections at Lambert-St. Louis International Airport. Members of AAdvantage®, American Airlines' travel awards program, will earn miles for travel on combined American Airlines-Cape Air itineraries and may redeem AAdvantage® miles on combined American Airlines-Cape Air itineraries as well.
