By Air

Most of the major airlines fly into Boston’s Logan Airport. Once at Logan you can either drive, fly via Cape Air, high speed ferry or motor coach.  Here are some helpful links.

One of our favorite ways to P-town is to fly on Cape Air (800-352-0714). Joint fares are available from many cities, with easy connections in Boston, particularly from U.S. Air and Continental. The Cessna flight takes 20 minutes and offers great views, especially at sunset.
