Cayman Airways’ weekly service between Grand Cayman and Montego Bay is back.
The weekly route officially restarted last week, the first time it has operated since the onset of the pandemic.
Cayman Airways is operating the flights on Thursdays, using a 160-seat Boeing 738 aircraft.
Cayman also operates daily flights between Grand Cayman and Kingston Jamaica, with twice-daily service on Friday.
“I could not be more pleased to welcome back this service by Cayman Airways,” said Minister of Tourism, Jamaica, the Hon. Edmund Bartlett. “The key to growing visitor arrivals and building tourism is airlift. Therefore, the resumption of these flights into Montego Bay is an important step in making Jamaica an aviation hub and building better inter-island connectivity within the Caribbean so that travelers can enjoy multiple destinations in one trip.”
The launch means Cayman Airways is now operating nine weekly flights to Jamaica.
“Having more small airline partners like Cayman Airways operate into more airports in Jamaica helps us build capacity into various areas within the destination,” said Jamaica Tourism Director Donovan White. “We want to make it easier for passengers to be able fly into one island on a larger carrier, then use a smaller one to connect to their final destination.”
