City officials have signed off on Cape Air's proposal for seaplane service between Boston and New York.

The board of the Boston Planning and Development Agency on Thursday gave the go-ahead to the proposal from the Hyannis-based airline.

The approval of a one-year trial period for the service comes with some terms and conditions, including a limit of four scheduled daily roundtrip flights between Boston and New York City.

Monthly meetings between Cape Air and local ferry operators, where they will talk through issues and logistics, are also required.
