By Airplane

The Cape Air airplane, painted with whales by artist Jurek Zamoyski, flies over Provincetown Harbor. IFAW sponsored the painting of the plane.

Provincetown Airport:

Cape Air www.flycapeair.com services Provincetown Airport (approximately 3 miles from The Lands End Inn). This is certainly the easiest connection for Boston (Logan Airport) arrivals. Flying time is 25 minutes. During season, flights operate steadily throughout the day – almost to the point of shuttle service during peak weekend periods. In spring & fall shoulder periods, there are fewer connections. Although not the least expensive route, flying avoids the hassle of summer traffic on Cape Cod. Round-trip cost varies depending on season, advance purchase restrictions, etc. Some airlines have connecting fare and baggage agreements with Cape Air; check with your specific carrier. Reservations & information: (800) 352-0714. Local taxis routinely meet most arriving Provincetown flights; the fare is $5/person to the inn.

Boston – Logan Airport:

Traditionally, the gateway to Provincetown – either for air connection directly to Provincetown via Cape Air or for rental car pick-up from major rental companies. The 120-mile drive from Logan can take as little as 2½ hours or as much as 3½ hours if impacted by rush-hour traffic in Boston and weekend traffic onto Cape Cod. www.massport.com

Providence (Rhode Island) – T.F. Green Airport:

This expanding airport is a logical alternative to Boston’s Logan for arriving guests who are not planning to connect directly by air to Provincetown. Airfares into Providence are often very competitive because of the entry of Southwest Airlines into this market. Driving time & distance to Provincetown from T.F. Green is virtually the same as from Logan. www.pvdairport.com

Hyannis (Cape Cod) Airport:

We do not typically recommend the use of Hyannis Airport because of the lack of connections to Provincetown. However, some guests utilize Hyannis for specific connections to New York and other destinations. Infrequent bus service from a separate downtown Hyannis bus terminal makes taxis or rental cars the most practicable mode of transfer to Provincetown (1-hour driving time).www.town.barnstable.ma.us/departments/airport/05
