US Airline to Terminate Essential Air Service (EAS) to Two Cities Due to Pilot Shortage

14th May 2022

Due to pilot shortage, Cape Air filed its intent to terminate service in Quincy, Massachusetts and Burlington, Iowa to which it has already notified the U.S. Department of Transportation.

“Like many airlines, we are managing operational constraints primarily having to do with the nationwide pilot shortage,” said Linda Markham, President & CEO of Cape Air.

“One of their competitors I know recently pulled out of multiple cities, because they just didn’t have the pilots,” said Quincy Regional Airport Director Gabriel Hanafin.

But President & CEO Linda Markham has also said “Until another airline can guarantee service, Cape Air has committed to making our best efforts for reliable and consistent service at both Quincy and Burlington,”.
