The $29 fare is available on flight 1121, which departs St. Louis at 9:40 a.m. and arrives at the Cape Girardeau Regional Airport at 10:30 a.m., Monday through Friday.
Cape Air will still offer its signature $50 one-way fare on all other flights between Cape Girardeau and St. Louis. Cape Air provides a total of four daily round trip flights between Cape Girardeau and St. Louis on weekdays and two daily round trips on weekends.
“The addition of a $29 fare is great for the community,” said Bruce Loy, Airport Manager. “This fare allows some of our passengers the option of flying round trip from Cape to St. Louis for only $79.”
“We wanted to do something to thank the Cape Girardeau community for the tremendous support that we’ve received since the first day that we entered their market,” said Linda Markham, President of Cape Air. “The $29 fare is our way of saying thank you to Cape Girardeau—thank you for your business and thank you for making us part of your wonderful community.”
