Cayman Airways has released its repatriation flight schedule for May, which includes two flights a week to and from Miami, one flight every Friday to and from Kingston and two flights a month to and from La Ceiba.

The frequency of flights remains the same as for March and April.

In February, Premier Alden McLaughlin said he was hopeful that Cayman could have vaccinated enough of its population by the end of April or early May to reopen the islands’ borders and discontinue quarantine periods for incoming passengers.

Cayman Compass projections put the border reopening closer to the end of May or early June, based on current vaccination rates with a target of 80% of the adult population completing a full vaccination course.

Currently, the only commercial airlines which are allowed to operate flights to and from Cayman are Cayman Airways and British Airways. Both are running repatriation flights. British Airways is operating flights between London and Grand Cayman twice a month.
