Cayman Airways Listed as one of the top eight airlines in the world

Richard Bangs knows his stuff. The explorer, travel writer, TV producer and TV personality has authored 19 books, written articles and essays for esteemed newspapers, produced documentaries and TV series and was part of the founding executive team of

Throughout Richard Bangs’ career he has flown countless airlines and routes and now his well travelled eye has been drawn to our very own national airline.

Cayman Airways has been included in his list of the top eight airlines worldwide, “The 8 Great Airlines for 2015.” In the Huffington Post article, Cayman Airways appears alongside airline giants Qatar Airways, Etihad Airways, Cathay Pacific, Turkish Airlines, Lan Airlines and Emirates, proving that although small, the flag carrier packs an aviation punch.

Bangs mentions in his glowing write up, the dozens of Caribbean airlines who have come and gone over the years, but Cayman Airways, who came into being in 1968, has stood the test of time and is still here offering exceptional, and uniquely Caymanian, service.

There are many aspects which set Cayman Airways apart from other airlines, not least the free two bag allowance up to 55 lbs each which Bangs admits is an “exception” in today’s travel world. The much loved complimentary rum punch travelers are offered as the service carts pass them by is another extra touch that other airlines do not have.


The airline recognizes the need for Cayman residents to often leave the rock, and therefore regularly offers packages and deals. Currently, they are offering a Miami flight and hotel package, giving customers lower prices for roundtrip flights and a two night stay at either Miami Marriott Dadeland or Courtyard Miami Dadeland for one or two people. Packages for up to four people per room, for up to seven nights are also available.

For those who want a more fleeting visit, a Miami daytrip package is also available, including round trip airfare and a midsize Alamo rental car.

Gift certificates

The airline offers more nonstop flights to and from Cayman than any other airline, and warm Caymanian hospitality makes each flight an enjoyable experience. For those who are looking for something different to put under the tree at Christmas time, there are few options that would be more useful to Cayman residents than a gift certificate on Cayman Airways.

Cayman Airways flies to many exciting destinations, such as the US, Jamaica, Honduras and Cuba. What better gift to give someone this season than the gift of travel? They’ll remember your generosity as they lie back, relax and enjoy every moment of their vacation.
