As a response to the ongoing COVID-19 Pandemic, Cape Air implemented enhanced safety precautions and cleaning procedures to ensure its passengers’ and employees’ health and well-being. Before each flight, employees thoroughly disinfect surfaces using approved cleaning agents, following the CDC’s guidance on suggested sterilization methods. Additionally, Cape Air’s fleet flies at lower altitudes, which means fresh air cycles throughout the cabin, pressurized/recycled air is never used. As part of the measures to promote health and safety, Cape Air requires all passengers to wear face masks or coverings at their check-in counters, gate areas, and onboard the aircraft. Cape Air asks its passengers to bring masks or face coverings; however, masks are provided should a passenger not have one available.
