Barnstable Municipal Airport Manager Roland "Bud" Breault has some good news for folks who live and work near the Hyannis airport. The recently announced seasonal JetBlue flights between Hyannis and New York City are not only a welcomed addition to the airport's daily schedule, but a quiet one.

The jet that will take commuters and visitors to and from Barnstable Municipal Airport and John F. Kennedy Airport is an Embraer E190 twin-engine jet, known for its quiet takeoffs and landings.

"The E190 has modern General Electric jet engines that produce less noise," according to Breault. "The plane climbs rapidly and leaves less of a noise print on the ground."

The planes are Brazillian-made and feature 100 leather seats in a two-seat by two-seat configuration and a seat-based inflight entertainment system. In a release, Breault called the E190 a "welcome addition to our airport."

Daily JetBlue service between JFK and Hyannis begins on June 26 and runs through September 9. Flights are scheduled to arrive in Hyannis at 1:05 p.m., then depart for New York at 1:45 p.m. Flights between the two destinations take about one hour. welcomes thoughtful comments and the varied opinions of our readers.
