In celebration of the partnership expansion, members will automatically earn 500 bonus miles on each Cape Air-operated flight booked with Delta and flown from now through August 31, 2021. Customers who are not currently SkyMiles Members can sign up here to take advantage of this special earning opportunity.

Recognized as "One of the Top Ten Small Airlines in the World" by Condé Nast Traveler, Cape Air is one of the largest U.S. commuter airlines serving 38 cities, including the Caribbean. The Massachusetts-based airline has grown to a fleet of 100 aircraft, more than 400 daily flights, and flying over 500,000 passengers annually. Cape Air operates three types of aircraft – the Cessna 402, the Tecnam P2012 Traveller, and the Britten-Norman Islander, all of which accommodate nine customers.
