Cayman Airways has announced a new service from the Charles Kirkconnell International Airport to the eastern city of Holguin in Cuba.
The Cayman Brac airport has undergone an extension over the past couple years. The first stage of the project included a 6,816 square foot addition to the east end of the existing building, with a check-in area, restrooms, security room, baggage screening, enlarged departure lounge and relocated café/bar. The second stage included a 4,670 square foot addition to the west end of the existing building and a new baggage claim area.
The first flight is scheduled to leave at the end of November, Saturday 28th. The schedule will see flights leaving Cayman Brac every Saturday, and will be the first international route since the airport expanded. Cayman Airways Express will provide connecting flights to and from Grand Cayman.
The new flights will provide connectivity as well as dual destination opportunities for Europeans and Canadians who find Cuba and Cayman a popular resort area.
The Saturday flight departs Cayman Brac at 13:30 and arrives in Holguin at 14:30. The plane then has an hour turnaround before it leaves Holguin at 15:30 and arrives back in Cayman Brac at 16:30.
