OWLS HEAD (AP) – A new passenger air carrier connecting midcoast Maine to Boston is up and running.

Cape Air began flights over the weekend linking the Knox County Regional Airport in Owls Head and Boston’s Logan International Airport.

The airline, which is owned by Massachusetts-based Hyannis Air Service, is making three round-trip flights a day from now through May. The company plans to offer four daily roundtrips in June and September, and five in July and August.

Travelers fly aboard a nine-seat Cessna 402 aircraft.

The U.S. Department of Transportation in August chose Cape Air to replace Colgan Air as the scheduled commercial air carrier providing low-fare flights between Boston and Knox County Regional Airport.
