Cayman Airways’ plan is to bring in one Boeing 737-800 and four 737 MAX 8’s to its fleet. The Cayman Island Deputy Premier and Minister for Tourism, District Administration and Transport Moses Kirkconnell has said the plan:
will not only give our National Airline the newest fleet in the region, but it will also guarantee our growth in tourism air arrivals as we prepare our airport to accommodate more visitors and as our room stock grows accordingly.
Mr. Kirkconnell has said that the current Boeing 737-300’s will be eliminated from it’s fleet by 2020. Cayman Airways Chairman Philip Rankin commented:
The low operating costs and potential for increased revenue allow the new aircraft to be introduced with no incremental government funding, and establishes a firm foundation for the continued success of the airline just as our 737-300 purchase brought strong financial benefit to the airlines, we are certain that this new step in our plan will again prove to be the right decision.
