It’s that time of year again when many of our customers are starting to plan new and exciting adventures for the warmer Spring and Summer months.
In March, we launched nonstop service to our newest destination, the “Mile High” City of Denver, Colorado. This route, which is the longest nonstop scheduled commercial flight to and from the Cayman Islands in history, opens up access for the Cayman Islands to the rest of the USA, particularly the Midwest and West Coast. This new route has been celebrated with much fanfare and excitement, and we are most excited that our brand new Boeing 737 Max 8 aircraft has made it possible for our journey West.
The extended range and increased payload of this new aircraft type opens up the potential for nonstop flights to and from destinations that were not previously accessible with our 737-300 fleet. By the end of this year, we will add two Max 8s to our fleet, and upon completion of our Fleet Modernization Plan currently in progress, Cayman Airways will proudly boast the newest jet fleet in the entire region, an achievement that our country can be very proud of.
If you’re vacationing in the Cayman Islands this year, well, we’re very excited for you! There are many accommodations options to choose from, as well as many world-class spas to help you relax and unwind. You can also unplug with a day trip or a longer visit to Cayman Brac and Little Cayman, our beloved Sister Islands. As the “Culinary Capital of the Caribbean,” Grand Cayman is the best choice in the region for diverse and creative dining experiences, hands down. In this issue of Skies, you can read all about these attributes and so much more.
Wherever your travel plans take you today, we’re delighted to have you flying with us, and invite you to enjoy a complimentary Seven Fathoms Rum Punch on board — a tradition that is very much a part of our airline’s history and culture. We look forward to welcoming you back on board with us again soon.
