We are ecstatic (to say the very least) to welcome the world back to our beautiful islands in the Caribbean – it'll be worth the wait! Although we have experienced a gentle return of visitors since our borders opened on November 20th to Phase 4 of our government’s reopening plan, an increase is forecasted for the beginning of the new year. While more and more airlines reinstate their service to the Cayman Islands, our national carrier Cayman Airways, has been bridging the gaps wherever possible and is slowly reintroducing old routes, making it easier for our visitors to reach us!
Common-sense social distancing, local cuisine, and gourmet food awaits. Enjoy the freedom of reduced mask regulations for the restaurant and tourism industry. Everyone is required to wear a mask upon entry to any indoor public space or restaurant and during boat rides to and from our world-famous diving, Stingray Sandbar, snorkeling, and other water-based excursions.
To date, Cayman Airways, British Airways, JetBlue, and United are delivering non-stop flights coming in from New York, Boston, the Bahamas (London connection), Tampa, and Miami.
United Airlines is set to resume service to Chicago, Houston, Washington, and Newark this month (February), while Cayman Airways flights from Denver will resume on Saturdays starting February 26, and Delta once again fly from Atlanta by March. Southwest Airlines service from Fort Lauderdale and Baltimore is also expected to resume in the coming months.
Soon enough, Air Canada will be offering direct flights from Toronto, and Delta and American Airlines will be updating their schedules, along with many other carriers filling in the passages for direct and connecting routes. CLICK HERE for the most recent airlines travelling to the Cayman Islands.
