Information on repatriation flights (April 29)

The following repatriation flights are being organised for the near future.

HONDURAS

A flight to La Ceiba has been planned for early next week- Friday May 8

All questions should be directed to Cayman Airways. 

This flight has now sold out. 

This flight will be bringing some Individuals to Cayman. These persons will be isolated for 14 days.

Those who plan to travel to Honduras will need a doctor’s note stating that they do not have any symptoms of COVID-19. This needs to be emailed to Maria.leng@fco.gov.uk .

There are no return flights planned from Honduras, so those who travel there from Cayman should not plan on returning in the near future.

MEXICO

The governor's office has been working closely with the Mexican Government and has agreed on a flight to Cancun, Mexico. This will take Mexican Nationals from a pre-approved list held by the Mexican Embassy in Jamaica. If there are other people interested in a flight to Mexico, please email emergencytravel@gov.ky.

This flight will only be outbound.
