BILLINGS -

The new air carrier for eastern Montana cut the ribbon, opening its operations here in Billings.

Cape Air started service Tuesday as a part of the Essential Air Service program. It will serve five eastern Montana communities. You can fly one way for 49 dollars, with flights daily from Billings to Sidney, Glendive, Glasgow, Wolf Point, and Havre. The aircrafts can hold nine passengers. Company employees say they are excited to connect these communities.

"Cape Air's been around since 1989," said Andrew Bonney, Cape Air's planning senior vice president. "We love serving small communities. It's what we do. We've got the right airplane to do it. We can bring air access to even the smallest communities."
