Flights to Nantucket Island with Tradewind and Cape Air

Nantucket is serviced by a host of regional airlines flying out of Boston, New York and other East Coast cities. Many visitors prefer to bring their cars over, and thus take the Ferry Service from Hyannis or Harwich Port, MA.

The terminal houses airlines, a restaurant, ATM machines, public phones, restrooms, a gift shop, and car rental agencies, and free wireless internet. Taxi service is available.
