Cape Air inaugurated Anguilla service on December 22, 2010 and it was an immediate success. “The Cape Air model of high-frequency flights and easy connections with the mainland is a needed service on Anguilla,” said Andrew Bonney, Cape Air’s Vice President of Planning. “We are thrilled to be at a point already where it makes economic sense to add capacity on Anguilla. With a fleet of 66 aircraft Cape Air can add as many seats as Anguilla needs, in an economically rational and sustainable way,” he added. Cape Air’s Anguilla service neither needs nor receives subsidy.

Cape Air’s partnerships with JetBlue and Continental Airlines have allowed for widespread distribution, increasing access to Anguilla as a tourism destination. Customers can book flights to Anguilla on the website of San Juan’s largest airline, JetBlue Airways. Cape Air’s codeshare with Continental Airlines puts Anguilla on Continental’s route map. In addition, Cape Air has for more than a decade interlined with American, Continental, Delta, US Airways and United.
