Delta Airlines launches new non-stop flights to Cayman
Delta Air Lines will add a new seasonal flight between Grand Cayman and New York JFK.
Starting June 13, flights will run every Saturdays through August 20, between John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) and Owen Roberts International Airport (GCM) on 160-seat Boeing 737-800 jets.
This will be Delta’s first nonstop service on this route since 2015.
“We are excited to welcome increased airlift from New York City to Grand Cayman this summer, particularly with a long-time international partner like Delta Air Lines that has an extensive network of travellers in the tri-state region,” said Hon. Minister of Tourism, Mr Moses Kirkconnell. “With Delta’s new seasonal service and the Department of Tourism’s annual, destination-wide summer promotions, we are poised to provide even more New Yorkers with a memorable and easily-accessible Cayman Islands vacation this summer.”
“Delta is New York’s No. 1 airline, and this service to the Cayman Islands joins the ranks of our more than 200 daily departures to more than 80 destinations in 30 countries,” said Chuck Imhof, Delta Vice President- New York Sales. “Families and vacationers seeking escape from the big city this summer will find the perfect adventure in this culturally rich island getaway.”
“Each new flight introduced to Grand Cayman provides visitors with more options to explore our beautiful destination while creating additional tourism and business opportunities among our valued airline partners,” said Ms Rosa Harris, Director of Tourism. “We thank Delta for continuing to serve and invest in the Cayman Islands, and look forward to bringing even more travellers from the tri-state area to experience our sun, sand, sea and Caymankind vibes this summer.”
Delta already serves Grand Cayman (GCM) with year-round service via Atlanta and seasonal service from Detroit and Minneapolis/St. Paul.
