Cayman Airways Celebrates 49th Anniversary
August 7th is always a special day in the Cayman Airways calendar, as it marks the airline’s anniversary of serving as the national airline of the Cayman Islands, since 1968.
The airline and customers alike celebrated this anniversary with airfares on sale for all Fall destinations, including the Miami route, Tampa, New York, Havana, La Ceiba, Roatan, Kingston and Montego Bay, as well as Cayman Brac and Little Cayman locally. There were also inflight raffles for travelling passengers throughout the day.
From humble beginnings in the late 1960s, Cayman Airways now employs a staff of more than 300 people, 93% of which are Caymanians, and serves two national and 10 international gateways. As with any international Cayman Airways flight, passengers can check-in two bags (up to 55 pounds each) each way FREE of charge, plus enjoy free Seven Fathoms Rum Punch in-flight.
