As we continue to celebrate Cayman Airways’ momentous 50th anniversary, the outpouring of love and support we’ve received from the local community has been a great highlight for me. It serves as a reminder of why those of us at Cayman’s National Flag Carrier work so hard to offer the most nonstop flights to and from the Cayman Islands than any other airline, plus so much more. Thank you to everyone who has helped us mark this important milestone thus far.
While we shift our focus to the final quarter of the year, here at Cayman Airways we’re beaming with pride and anticipation of yet another milestone to come for this year — the arrival of the first of four brand new, state-of-the-art Boeing 737-8Max aircraft by December. Not only will this be a milestone achievement for Cayman Airways, but for the entire Caribbean, as it will be the first aircraft of its kind in any fleet in the region. Needless to say, it will be the perfect culmination of a historic year for our national airline.
We’re also looking forward to the annual Pirates Week Festival in the Cayman Islands in November. From humble beginnings in 1977, the festival continues to draw thousands of visitors from all over the world. As the Official Airline of Pirates Week, we invite you to check out the feature story in this issue of Skies and get to know some of our most popular “pirates” whose swashbuckling performances keep residents and visitors coming back every year.
Whether you’re a visitor or resident, if you’re struggling with an end-of-Summer slump, we encourage you to treat yourself to a weekend getaway or a Sister Islands staycation this Fall. It’s the perfect time of year to catch great vacation deals in the Cayman Islands or any of our other gateway cities. Of course, amongst our favourite destinations are our own beautiful and serene Sister Islands. On both Little Cayman and Cayman Brac, you’ll feel worlds away from reality. In this issue of Skies, we take you on a wellness retreat to Little Cayman and dive into some of the best ways to disconnect from everything. For Cayman Islands’ residents, we also encourage you to visit our other world-famous destinations located a short flight away, including Kingston, Montego Bay, Miami, Tampa, Roatán, La Ceiba and Havana. New York is also an excellent destination to visit during the Fall months.
As the National Airline of the Cayman Islands, we want to ensure that all of our passengers experience the very best of Caymankindness, as can only be delivered by Cayman Airways. From complimentary Seven Fathoms Rum Punch inflight to an all-inclusive Business Class Service, we’re honoured to serve you, our loyal customers.
So whatever your reason for travelling with us today, we are thrilled that you have chosen Cayman Airways, and we look forward to seeing you on board with us again soon.
