Although mail from Jamaica resumed
Wednesday, 2 June, the Cayman Islands Postal Service has advised that mail
coming from the United Kingdom, other parts of Europe, Asia and the Bahamas may
face continued disruption.
While mail to and from Jamaica was
disrupted due to violent unrest in the capital city of Kingston, it is the
British Airways strike that is interrupting the distribution of mail to and
from areas in Europe and Asia.
“The Cayman Islands Postal Service
is making every effort to re-route mail for delivery overseas so that it is not
unduly delayed due to the British Airways strike,” said Acting Postmaster
General, Melissa Martinez-Ebanks, “However, some delays are still possible.”
British Airways has announced its
revised schedule for the period of 5 to 9 June, but there may be more strikes
later this summer, according to news reports.
Normal service to the Cayman
Islands is scheduled to resume on Friday, 11 June when flight BA0253 will
depart from London Heathrow.
