Each new year brings new hopes and dreams. Like you, we reflect on past years and we look forward to all of what 2020 will bring. We are daring to dream big, and we are excited about the potential of the new year as we explore so many ways to benefit our passengers and the Cayman Islands.
Our roots were planted in 1955 as a small airline called “Cayman Brac Airways,” operated by Costa Rican carrier LACSA. Thirteen years later, on August 7, 1968, the airline was purchased by the Cayman Islands Government and renamed Cayman Airways Limited. With the newly expanded role, Cayman Airways began connecting the Cayman Islands to the world, with the very first international flight being to Kingston, Jamaica.
In the more than 50 years since Cayman Airways came into being, its focus has continued to be one that provides optimal air service within the three Cayman Islands and to the world. Cayman Airways remains committed to consistently providing the highest standard of service and comfort to the hundreds of thousands of passengers we will serve this year.
Whether it is having the choice of more nonstop flights to and from the Cayman Islands than any other airline or one of the many other special touches we provide, we hope that you will see for yourself why those who fly us, love us.
We believe that flying should be as enjoyable as possible for our passengers, so we remain dedicated to providing excellent value for money, delivering unique travel experiences and serving up true Caymanian hospitality. Our complimentary inflight Seven Fathoms Rum Punch is an example of this commitment, and it reminds us all that Caymankindness is so much more than a national slogan — for Cayman Airways and its employees, it’s a way of life.
On behalf of the entire Cayman Airways family, thank you for flying with us today; and I wish you all the best for the year ahead.
Fabian Whorms President & CEO, Cayman Airways Ltd.
