A Cayman Airways Flight, en route to John F. Kennedy International Airport, was diverted as a result of in-climate weather conditions in the New York area last week.
“Extreme weather in the Tri-State area on Wednesday and Thursday forced the irregular operations we experienced along with 50 or more flights from various other carriers. Cayman Airways apologises to customers who were impacted by the severe thunderstorms in the New York area this week”, said Patrick Strasburger, CEO and president of Cayman Airways.
Flight 792 on 27 June on the way to JFK from Owen Roberts International Airport was diverted to Washington Dulles International Airport due to severe weather in the New York area. Flight 792 arrived in IAD, was refuelled and waited for clearance to continue to JFK. Flight 792 arrived at JFK at 3.30am, six hours delayed.
Subsequently, the return of this flight on Thursday 28 June, Cayman Airways 793, was also affected by a ground-stop at JFK due to local weather. Cayman Airways flight 793 departed JFK at 4.34pm local time and arrived at GCM at 9.10pm, nine hours delayed.
