Ways for your family and friends to get to Cayman on the cheap in 2020

As with most Caymanian residents, you probably have friends and family abroad and we at Loop want to make it easier for you to see the ones you love in 2020. 

Here are some of the cheapest seats we could find for the upcoming months. But tell your friends and family to act now because these deals won’t last forever!


Sunwing is celebrating its new routes to Cayman with the Million Dollar Beach Blowout Sale. For a limited time, travellers can explore Sunwing’s newest destination at an unbeatable price when they choose to stay at Margaritaville Beach Resort Grand Cayman. 

American Airlines

American is offering non-stop, summer flights from New York to the Cayman Islands for only $268 roundtrip with limited availability from June to July 2020. Example dates: 6th-13th Jun, 11th-18th Jul, 11th-25th Jul


Jetblue’s best fare finder has flights from as low as $74 each way from Fort Lauderdale, $119 each way from New York and $161 each way from Boston. 
In addition, JetBlue Vacations offers deals from resort credits and upgrades to welcome gifts and freebies. When you book a JetBlue Vacations package by 3/31/20 and travel by 12/31/20 you can enjoy exclusive perks at select resorts. Blackout dates apply and vary by property. 


American Express Membership Rewards, Chase Ultimate Rewards and Marriott Bonvoy offer mileage deals to Cayman. There are also frequent mileage deals using British Airways Avios to fly American Airlines, since British Airways’ award chart is distance-based. Flying from Miami (MIA) to Grand Cayman, for example, requires just 7,500 Avios each way. And Dallas (DFW) to Grand Cayman is just 11,000 Avios.

On American Airlines, points to Cayman are typically between 10,000 and 15,000 AAdvantage miles each way.

Chase Ultimate Rewards can be transferred to Southwest Rapid Rewards but you’ll have to connect in Fort Lauderdale (FLL). Consider opening a Southwest credit card such as the Southwest Rapid Rewards Premier Credit Card to stock up on points. Round-trip awards to Cayman start at 7,020 points and $90 in taxes and fees.
