Located on 623 acres, the airport is home to Cape Air/Nantucket Airlines, Island Airlines and Rectrix Aviation along with numerous other charter, corporate and general aviation aircraft operations. More than 100,500 passengers boarded aircraft at the airport in 2011.

A 2012 state study found that the airport has a direct economic impact of $133 million a year on the Cape Cod community. The analysis, by the Aeronautics Division of the Massachusetts Department of Transportation, calculated the value of jobs, payroll and business generated by the airport and its tenants, along with visitor spending.

The study found there is a measurable multiplier of an additional $95 million a year produced by the recirculation of money spent locally by airport businesses and the people employed there. Overall, the study determined that Barnstable Municipal Airport generates 2,246 jobs, a $74 million payroll and $227 million a year in direct and indirect benefits. Read the full study and methodology.

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.

Passengers are served by airline ticket counters, car rental agencies, the Mad Platter restaurant, an art gallery/shop, TSA security equipment and an online flight tracking system allowing real time views of arriving and departing aircraft.

Thumbnail History

The Hyannis Airport originated in 1928 as a single grass runway before being taken over by the Town of Barnstable in the 1930s. During World War II, it was expanded to three 4,000-foot runways for the Army Air Corps and used by aircraft on anti-submarine patrol. The Navy later assumed control of the airport for pilot training. After the war, the airport was returned to the town as a two-runway, municipal airport, serving all of Cape Cod.
