Is there really that much demand for these flights? I mean...Baltimore to Lancaster and Baltimore to Hagerstown is hardly even a 2 hour drive. In the time it takes to get to the airport, park, check-in, and go through security, you could be most of the way there. If you come from the western suburbs of Baltimore, you have a head start on driving.

The core purpose of these flights is likely not any traffic to go just BWI-HGR or BWI-LNS, as there just isn't a lot of demand. The target, rather, is to get people connecting to other airlines at BWI. For $59 each way it would seem fairly competitive when the main other option for people in Hagerstown is to drive 1.5hrs or more and pay for parking.

Ah, okay, that makes a bit more sense. Would have been nice to say which airlines CapeAir has codeshare agreements with in that case.

Actually, there are no codeshare agreements for CapeAir at BWI. The CapeAir flights are, however, bookable through Expedia and other online travel services. A flyer in Hagerstown is able to buy one itinerary, granted they will likely have to check-in again with their connecting airline at BWI.

This is better than previous airline service connecting BWI to Hagerstown which only made tickets available on their own website, thus requiring two purchases for one itinerary.
