New Hyannis-Worcester Service Represents Latest Expansion for Rectrix

HYANNIS – With their new service between Worcester and Hyannis, Rectrix Aviation continues to expand into the commercial passenger jet market.

The new flight between Worcester Regional Airport and Barnstable Municipal Airport debuted last week and represents the first major expansion of the company’s Hyannis shuttle service. Rectrix, a private charter operator, began running roundtrip passenger flights to and from Nantucket in 2016.

The move is a part of Rectrix’s long-term goals to establish a series of regional routes and scheduled flights.

According to CEO Richard Cawley, the company plans to start service between Worcester, Baltimore-Washington International, and Sarasota, Florida. He said Hyannis would be linked to that route.

“Massachusetts is a great aviation market that is so untapped. It’s unbelievable,” Cawley said.

The expansion efforts follow what the company describes as a successful rollout of the daily Nantucket-Hyannis service last year. Rectrix reported in February they exceeded their projected passenger goals in the first three months of service.

The company, the state’s largest private-jet operator, has expressed optimism that their expansion into scheduled service will continue on an upward trend.

“We have the pockets to do it and we’ll make it successful,” Cawley said.
