Cape Girardeau to St. Louis air service launches

CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. (AP) -- Cape Air has begun its service between Cape Girardeau and St. Louis.

The Southeast Missourian reported Monday that only a handful of passengers boarded on the first day of service Sunday.

Cape Air spokeswoman Michelle Haynes said the company is not concerned.

She said the first couple of days with a new service are typically slow.

She added that the Hyannis, Mass.-based company has opened about a dozen new markets in recent months.

Cape Air received the two-year contract to serve Cape Girardeau on Oct. 22, giving the company only 16 days to launch operations.
