HAGERSTOWN -- Kay Baker flew in from Tyler, Texas, to see her niece.
Steve Berner was able to get back to Hagerstown quicker to handle a family medical emergency.
Kay Cannady came from Tulsa, Okla., to visit her granddaughter.
The three passengers were among those who took advantage of the first day of commercial air service between Hagerstown and Baltimore being offered by Cape Air.
Hagerstown lost commercial air service in September 2007 when a federal Essential Air Service subsidy expired.
Service returned in November when Allegiant Air began offering flights between Hagerstown and Orlando, Fla. Allegiant Air is not receiving a federal subsidy.
A total of 21 people -- 12 flying to Baltimore and nine coming to Hagerstown -- used Cape Air Tuesday, according to Cape Air officials.
