Cessna Grand Caravans
In January 2009 Island Airlines announced the addition of a Cessna 208 Caravan to their fleet, becoming the first airline in over 30 years to add a new type of aircraft to the Hyannis/Nantucket route. The airline has since added two more Grand Caravans and plans to eventually transition to an all-Caravan fleet. Island Airlines is currently the only airline flying this type of aircraft between Hyannis and Nantucket, a market traditionally dominated by the smaller Cessna 402.
