Cape Air, which provides seven flights from Billings to rural Eastern Montana, is adding a new model of commuter airplane to replace the airline's aging fleet of Cessna 402s. The first flight in Montana on the new Tecnam P2012 Traveller on a trip from Wolf Point to Billings was on Friday, April 9. The Airport provided a water canon salute for this flight.
The new Tecnam P2012 Traveller is a short-haul airplane meant for the type of quick commuter flights Cape Air offers. The Essential Air Service routes are designed to connect rural communities to larger hubs and are heavily subsidized by the federal government.
