Cayman Airways Expands Fleet

Cayman Airways aircraft fleet grew by one on Friday August as the airline’s newest plane, a Saab 340B+, touched down on Cayman soil for the first time.

The 34-seater Saab 340B+ aircraft will serve the Grand Cayman/Cayman Brac route exclusively when active service is launched to replace the 30-seat Embraer E120 service, which is currently operated under a wet-lease arrangement with InterCaribbean Airlines.

A more modern and newer aircraft, the Saab 340B+’s cabin features wider aisles and seats along with increased headroom and larger over-head bins.

“We are thrilled to take possession of this new aircraft, which will officially start flying scheduled flights in September,” said Cayman Airways Limited President & CEO, Fabian Whorms.

“The monumental undertaking of adding an entirely new aircraft type to our fleet has been challenging, but our team has been rallied and worked diligently to accomplish this task. Now that the aircraft has been delivered the final steps necessary to put the airline into service can be completed. We know many are anxious for the maiden voyage of the Saab and we intend to begin flying as soon as possible.”
