Cayman Airways has officially launched its new service to the island of Roatan in Honduras.
The service is operating twice weekly between Grand Cayman and Roatan on Boeing 737 aircraft.
Cayman already operates year-round flights from Grand Cayman to La Ceiba, Honduras twice each week.
“The new Roatan twice-weekly service will further enhance direct and connecting travel opportunities for both business and leisure travelers,” said Phillip Rankin, chairman of Cayman Airways’ board of directors.
According to Cayman Airways CEO Fabian Whorms, the La Ceiba route “did increasingly well last year,” with travelers taking advantage of connectivity through Miami.
The new flights are operating on Thursdays and Saturdays, with return legs 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.”
