Rectrix Unveils Aircraft for New Passenger Service

Retrix - 2HYANNIS – With its inaugural passenger service from Hyannis to Nantucket set to begin this summer, Rectrix Aviation has unveiled the aircraft the company will be using.

The Beechcraft Super King Air 300 turbo-prop planes will shuttle back and forth for its commercial flights, adding to its current private fleet of Bombardier Challenger and Learjet aircraft.

“The Super King Air is one of the most in-demand and requested turbo-prop aircraft and we are thrilled to announce we’ll be using this aircraft on our commuter flights,” said Rectrix Holding’s CEO Richard Cawley. “With spacious and comfortable passenger cabins, we feel this is the perfect aircraft for a short-haul commuter service.

Retrix - 1Cawley adds that in addition to the comfort, safety will be the number one priority, as two pilots will be used for every flight.

Rectrix has been working with Barnstable Municipal Airport for several months to fill the void left by the sudden shutdown of Island Airlines in December, and with FAA approval to begin service expected in the coming weeks, airport officials believe the service will certainly be welcomed by passengers.

“We know that there’s a lot of passengers out there that are looking for the service and Rectrix will certainly provide a good, first-class service,” Barnstable Municipal Airport Manager Bud Breault said.

The official start-date, or ticket prices for passenger service has yet be announced, however officials say the target is the beginning of summer.
