Cape Air has been named one of eight "Best Small Airlines in North America" by the Smarter Travel website.
Smarter Travel writer Ed Perkins praises the Vineyard-serving airline, which also does business as Nantucket Air, for finding "not one but five different niches," including the Northeast; Puerto Rico to nearby islands; Fort Myers to Key West, Fla.; St. Louis to regional Midwestern cities and the Guam-Saipan-Rota route.
The other small airlines Perkins picked, listed in alphabetical order:
- Allegiant (USA)
- Air Transat (Canada)
- Go! (USA)
- Interjet (Mexico)
- Porter (Canada)
- Spirit (USA)
- Sun Country (USA)
Cape Air made headlines earlier this year when it appointed the only woman airline president in the United States.
