“Patrick has brought to CAL a wealth of knowledge and experience which has greatly assisted us for almost 2 years in our turnaround plan and the progress we have made,’ Cayman Airways Board of Directors Chairperson Angelyn Hernandez said in a prepared statement. ‘I have spoken to Patrick and he has struggled with this decision as he has grown to love this company and is excited about what has been achieved and where we are headed. However, for personal reasons he must relocate to Florida with his children and I respect his decision.”

The Board is presently considering the best way forward and Ms Hernandez said members will be taking steps to fill this position in due course.

Mr. Strasburger’s decision comes close on the heels of another high-profile resignation at Cayman Airways.

CAL Vice President Commerical John Wrightington stepped down in May after only 15 months on the job. He also cited family reasons for leaving.
