October 19, 2017 – The Caribbean region has always been a special place for everyone at Cape Air. Since early September, when the first of two major hurricanes ravaged the islands we love, the entire Cape Air employee group has been focused on our friends, colleagues, and customers in Puerto Rico, the USVI, and BVI. The safety of our employees, resuming daily service and offering relief flights in the region has been the sole focus of our company since Hurricane Maria, and then Hurricane Irma devastated the islands.
We have been strongly committed to the communities we serve in Puerto Rico, the US Virgin Islands, and the British Virgin Islands since we began Caribbean service in 1998. The entire Cape Air family of over 1,000 employees will continue to support the territory through this trying period.
We have officially resumed scheduled, commercial service to the region, with daily flights to/from San Juan, Mayagüez, Vieques, Tortola, St. Thomas, and St. Croix. We will continue to update our Travel Alert with the latest information for customers seeking details on flight schedules, refunds, and exchanges. We will also regularly update our social channels with the latest updates.
When we have been able, we have been transporting supplies to the islands we serve. However, resources and capacity are limited for requests to transport supplies from Northeast cities to Boston for transport to San Juan.
Organizations who would like to inquire about Cape Air providing local relief flying should email [email protected].
For Caribbean charter inquiries, please email ch[email protected]. Our Charters group will review each request.
An astounding number of groups and individuals have contacted us for information on how they can help support not only the region but Cape Air’s Caribbean-based employees. To date, we have sent 50 boxes of clothing, palettes of food and water, 20 generators and other supplies to our PR, BVI and USVI employees and their families.
