Here are the upcoming evacuation flights (May 31)

Since Cayman's borders closed in March, 1473 people have departed on emergency evacuation flights and 314 people have been able to return home to Cayman. Last Saturday’s flight to Manila was the 25th emergency evacuation flight to depart Owen Roberts International Airport.

The following flights are scheduled for the near future:

The British Airways evacuation flight to London Heathrow has now been confirmed for ‪Friday June‬ 12. If you have registered with the travel helpline you will be sent an email on Monday with details of how to book. Please do not call or email the travel helpline if you have already registered – they do not have any further details about this flight.

BA will be bringing back a limited number of passengers from London to Cayman. Because capacity is limited at the isolation facility, seats on this flight will be allocated by the Cayman Islands London Office. Do not contact the office if you have already registered, they will contact you. If you haven’t registered with the Cayman Islands London Office you can do so online at cigouk.ky/airbridge or contact info.cigo@gov.ky

In response to the ongoing high demand for repatriation flights from Cayman to Miami, Cayman Airways has now added flights on June 12 & 26, 2020. This will result in a series of Miami repatriation flights that will operate on June 5, 12, 19, & 26, 2020, with the same flight schedule as previously announced. One-way tickets for these flights to Miami can be purchased online at www.caymanairways.com or by calling Cayman Airways Reservations on 345-949-2311 or 1-800-422-9626 (toll free in the USA) between 8am and 6pm weekdays, and 9am-3pm on weekends.
