We are now just weeks away until Cape Air takes over flight service at Quincy Regional Airport.
The current carrier, SkyWest, will suspend operations the night of January 7 and Cape Air will take over the morning of January 8.
Earlier this week, city council approved the airport director to enter into a lease with Cape Air.
"We will have brand new planes," Quincy Director of Administrative Services Jeff Mays says. "We'll have service to both St. Louis and Chicago; $49 to St Louis and $79 to Chicago. We've been doing the prep work and I think it's going to be a smooth transition."
No word yet on when the Cape Air plane will arrive. When it does, airport officials say they will offer a day for the public to come out and view the new aircraft.
