Rota welcomes additional Cape Air flight

Continental Connection partner, Cape Air, will be adding a fourth weekly flight to Rota beginning on Nov. 24 as a result of increased demand, bringing renewed hope for island residents and the local tourism industry.

Cape Air made the announcement last week to Rota officials, including Senate President Paul Manglona (Ind-Rota).

It said this addition is on the heels of their adding a third Rota flight in April of this year.

The fourth flight will be Cape Air's first daylight-timed Rota stop.

“The increase in demand, which we registered after the April schedule enhancement, is encouraging. The support for Rota service from you and the community is greatly appreciated, and we are optimistic that frequencies may be further augmented going forward should demand continue,” Cape Air told Manglona.

Manglona said on Friday that “the people of Rota are so grateful to Cape Air for their service and assistance.”

“Our small businesses have been hurting from the lack of air transportation to our island, affecting our tourism industry. Our traveling public also has been greatly inconvenienced. So with this additional daytime flight, we are so thankful for Cape Air’s responsiveness to our people’s need for more air transportation frequency,” Manglona added.
