Cape Air has a fleet of 91 aircrafts, but they’re not your typical jumbo jets. The majority of Cape Air flights are serviced by Cessna 402 aircrafts. These small planes seat just 9 passengers, and all seats can be removed to convert these into cargo carriers. Flights to Micronesia utilize ATR 42-320 aircrafts, which seat 46 passengers. The small size of the these planes make group reservations and charter flights a reasonable option for those traveling in a small cohort.
Baggage allowances on Cape Air flights depend on your destination. All flights allow for a free personal item, and a free gate checked bag. On Cape Air airline flights that do not connect to other flights serviced by different airlines such as United or American, passengers are allowed on free checked bag up to 50 pounds. Bags from 51 pounds - 70 pounds incur an additional fee, and bags cannot exceed 70 pounds. If you need to check more than one bag, it will cost per bag and weight. For those who hope to travel with their pets, make sure to contact the airline in advance because they limit the number of pets on each aircraft, so if another passenger is already traveling with their furry friend, you might be out of luck. There is a $10 pet fee each way.
