Cayman-based Cayman Airways will be launching new nonstop flights to the island of Roatan in Honduras.
The new flights, which will debut March 16, will operate twice weekly on Boeing 737 aircraft.
Cayman Airways already operates year-round flights from Grand Cayman to La Ceiba, Honduras, twice weekly.
“It will definitely be a positive step for both countries so we’re looking forward to starting this service in March,” said Phillip Rankin, chairman of the airline’s board of directors. “The new Roatan twice-weekly service will further enhance direct and connecting travel opportunities for both business and leisure travelers.”
The new flights will operate on Thursdays and Saturdays, with the return legs from Roatan on Fridays and Sundays.
“The Cayman Islands have had a long history with Honduras and particularly the Bay Islands. New service between Grand Cayman and Roatan reconnects that link and will provide convenient travel options for Caymanians and inbound visitors. In addition to the direct service between our two countries, we also see opportunities to explore dual destination Travel in the future.”
