As Cayman Airways celebrates our 50th anniversary, we have plenty in store for our customers.
Every year around this time, there is a wonderful excitement in the air as families and friends jet off on much-anticipated Summer vacations. For all of us at Cayman Airways, it’s always such a pleasure to see the happiness on the faces of our customers and to be part of making their vacation dreams come true.
As a company, this time of year is also particularly special for us as we celebrate another successful year serving as the National Airline of the Cayman Islands. For the past 50 years, Cayman Airways has remained steadfast and focused on serving the needs of the Cayman community, and the needs of the country as a whole.
As we celebrate 50 years of service, we have a lot in store for our customers. Our year-long Golden Year campaign continues with monthly destination highlights and travel offers, including 50% bonus miles on select flights for Sir Turtle Rewards members. We are also now offering a variety of snacks for purchase on board all international flights. The menu can be found in the seat back pockets of each flight, or you can turn to the airline section in the back of this magazine.
With Skies, we’re celebrating with a new look. You’ll notice a new logo, new sections and a redesigned publication, with more bite-sized information for travellers on the go. If you’re interested in reading more about the history of the airline, turn to our commemorative insert, which features exclusive interviews with some of our airline executives that have been with us for decades, frequent flyers, and even some background information on the history of our fleet and our destinations.
It’s our strong history that we look to in order to evolve for the future. For five decades, we have had an impeccable safety record whilst working hard to meet the needs of our passengers. Today, the airline is continuing to blaze new trails and meet the needs of our passengers. Our Fleet Modernization Plan will continue to see our current fleet of Boeing 737-300 aircraft fully retired and replaced with new Boeing 737-8 MAX aircraft, which will allow for more comfortable travel and ensure that our passengers experience the best of Caymankindness.
It goes without saying that Cayman Airways’ success wouldn’t be possible without our dedicated employees. In this issue’s “Following Footsteps,” we speak with one of our airline’s long-time employees, Glenn McLean, about his passions and his commitment to our customers. Also, in the article titled “Leaders in the Sky,” we highlight the careers of some of our longest-serving pilots and captains, and the legacy they’ll leave behind.
I am very proud to say that all of us here at Cayman Airways take great pride in ensuring that everyone enjoys an excellent journey with us and can experience for themselves why we continue to promise “Those Who Fly Us, Love Us!”
Whatever your reason for travelling with us today, we are thrilled that you chose Cayman Airways, and we look forward to seeing you on board with us again soon.
President & CEO, Cayman Airways Ltd.
