Cayman Airways is adding extra flights to
New York following the reopening of John F. Kennedy Airport after the passage
of Tropical Storm Irene.
The airline cancelled four flights between New York and Cayman on Saturday,
Sunday and Monday as JFK Airport shut down at noon Saturday to prepare for the
onslaught of the storm.
Passengers booked on those cancelled
flights have been rebooked on additional Cayman Airways flights Monday, Tuesday
and Wednesday this week.
On Monday, 29 August, an additional flight
– KY3792 from Grand Cayman to JFK – is scheduled to depart at 5.30pm and arrive
in New York at 11pm. The return leg of that flight, KX3793, will depart JFK at
10.30am Tuesday, 30 August, arriving in Owen Roberts International Airport at
Cayman Airways will also be adding another
additional flight departing Grand Cayman on Tuesday, 30 August – Flight KX3794
will leave Cayman at 4.10pm and arrive in JFK at 9pm, with the return leg,
KX3795, from New York departing JFK at 8.45am Wednesday, 31 August and arriving
in Cayman at 11.45am.
Passengers who were booked to travel on
KX792 on 27 August and on KX793 on 28 August have been rolled over to these new
flights, according to a Cayman Airways spokesperson.
“Cayman Airways is in the process of
contacting all affected passengers to ensure a smooth transition to these
additional flights,” she said.
