Cape Air Re-selected to Serve Veterans Airport of Southern Illinois

October 29, 2019

Cape Air, the nation's largest commuter airline, will continue to provide scheduled air service at Veterans Airport of Southern Illinois for another 4-year term.

The airline currently offers daily, year-round service between Veterans Airport and St. Louis Lambert International Airport. With the new contract, Cape Air will also be offering flights between Veterans Airport and Nashville International Airport. Reservations on Cape Air between Veterans Airport and Nashville will be available once a schedule is finalized. An announcement will be made when seats to Nashville are out for sale.

Cape Air's President, Linda Markham, shares, "We are honored that we have been selected to continue our service at Veterans Airport. After a decade of providing reliable air service between southern Illinois and St Louis, we are excited to be expanding our route map to offer service between Veterans Airport and Nashville. We would like to thank our local community partners, employees, and passengers for their support over the past 10 years. We look forward to many more years of success and growth in southern Illinois.”

Doug Kimmel, Veterans Airport of Southern Illinois Airport Director, remarked, “The DOT selection is the culmination of an extensive public review and comment period that resulted in the airport receiving a majority of input favoring Cape Air.  With flights soon to be added to Nashville, along with introduction of the new Tecnam aircraft, we couldn’t be more excited about the air service opportunities before us.”
