Eviation Aircraft and Cape Air have signed a letter of intent for the purchase of 75 all-electric Alice commuter aircrafts.
The former company’s Alice aircraft, which can accommodate nine passengers and two crew members, is expected to help Cape Air to significantly reduce carbon emissions as well as maintenance and operation costs.
Cape Air flies more than 400 regional flights a day to nearly 40 cities in the Northeast, Midwest, Montana and the Caribbean.
The Eviation Alice is an all-electric aircraft designed to fly 440 nautical miles on a single charge and has a maximum speed of 250 knots.
Linda Markham, Cape Air President and CEO said: “Cape Air remains committed to sustainability, growth and innovation and our partnership with Eviation allows for these commitments to become a reality.
“Our customers will be at the forefront of aviation history and our communities will benefit from emission-free travel.”
