Due to the projected path of Hurricane Dorian, Cayman Airways will be waiving change fees and fare differences for passengers who cancel or postpone their flight reservations for travel between the Cayman Islands and Miami and Tampa, Florida, Cayman Airways announced in a statement issued Wednesday.

The waiver applies to those passengers who are holding ticketed reservations made on or before 28 Aug. 2019 for travel between 30 Aug. and 3 Sept.

Travel for changed flight segments may be rebooked by 3 Sept. 2019 for travel no later than 16 Sept.

The airline said refunds are not allowed on non-refundable tickets.
