CAL increases Honduras flights

Cayman Airways Limited is increasing service to its La Ceiba, Honduras gateway with two nonstop Boeing 737 jet flights a week starting 29 October, 2009.

Acting Chief Executive Officer, Fabian Whorms, says the company is looking forward to serving the Caribbean coastal town in the long term.

‘Honduras and Cayman have long been linked by the settlement of their people in each other’s communities,’ Mr. Whorms explained. ‘So we are very pleased to be able to provide greater frequency of non-stop jet flights between our homelands.’

The new twice-weekly non-stop jet service from Grand Cayman to La Ceiba will operate on Thursdays and Mondays. Flight KX 824 departs Grand Cayman at 1pm and arrives in La Ceiba at 1.20pm. The return flight, KX 825, departs La Ceiba at 2.20pm, arriving on Grand Cayman at 4.40pm. There is a one-hour time difference between the two gateways.

To celebrate the launch of this extended service, roundtrip airfares between Grand Cayman and La Ceiba start from US$220, not including taxes and fees. Travel must be completed by 7 December, 2009 with this fare.

Also for a limited time, Cayman Airways customers travelling to La Ceiba can take advantage of the airline’s current Three Bags Free offer and 50 per cent bonus air miles now through 31 October, 2009. Some conditions apply on all offers and sale fares.
