Barnstable Municipal Airport, located in Hyannis, Massachusetts on Cape Cod, provides commercial and general aviation services to Boston and the islands of Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket.  The Airport also serves as the corporate headquarters for regional airline, Cape Air.  It is owned by the Town of Barnstable and managed by the Barnstable Municipal Airport Commission and its staff.  Today, the airport consists of a new 35,000 sq. ft. passenger terminal, a new 85 ft. air traffic control tower, a new aircraft ramp and a new vehicle access road—all opened at the end of 2011— extensive parking facilities, a rescue and maintenance building and an aircraft fuel farm. More than 40 private tenants lease hangar space on parts of the airport property.
