Cape Air flights up and running


Cape Air/United is back online with flights resuming after a week of cancellations.

Flights were cancelled due to reported technical issues.

“Cape Air/United Express has resumed normal operations from the morning of Saturday, March 7, 2015. We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience we have caused during the flight cancelations,” said the Cape Air public relations office in a statement yesterday.

Cape Air has only one aircraft operating its Guam-CNMI route.

Saipan Tribune earlier reported that one of their AT42 aircraft, 836, was scheduled for maintenance in the first quarter of 2015. Of the two Cape Air planes, one is used as a “100 percent spare,” according to Cape Air vice president of planning earlier.

Swaths of flights were cancelled during the middle months of last year largely due to technical issues. United flew accommodating flights during that time as well.

They were hired by United to service this route.
