Booking a flight to Nantucket can be a little tricker than anywhere else in the country. Discover everything you need to know about planning your next flight to Nantucket.

  • Cape Air

Cape Air, otherwise known as Nantucket Airlines, is the local’s choice for flying in and out of Hyannis or Boston. Flights from the Cape are a brief 20 minutes and provide the quickest way to arrive in Nantucket. Flight times begin at 6 a.m. and typically run until late afternoon. The airline allows one checked bag along with one gate-checked bag. If you plan to travel back and forth to Nantucket frequently, you’ll want to consider purchasing a TravelPass that includes a 10-ticket pass.  

  • Major Airlines

If you’re planning on catching a flight to one of the major Northeastern airport hubs, you’ll want to check out some of the direct flights from Boston or NYC to Nantucket. Simplify your travel plans by flying into LaGuardia or Boston Logan when booking your flights to Nantucket. 

JetBlue, Delta, American, and United Airlines are the four major airlines that fly from Boston and New York City into Nantucket. Flights are limited throughout the day, so you’ll want to plan as far in advance as possible in order to snag the best fares.

  • Private Chartered Flights

Combine comfort and leisure when you charter a private flight from the Cape to Nantucket. Cape Air offers an exclusive personal air experience that allows privacy and time savings.
