The Ministry of Tourism said two additional round trip flights from the UK to Cayman have been added for the month of September.
In a statement released on Friday 20 Aug., a spokesperson for the MoT said the flights were added in response to increased demand for travel related to education.
The statement reads in part, “The two additional flights depart London Heathrow on 1st and 15th September respectively and return the following days, effectively doubling the number of return flights during September.”
The flights went on sale through the British Airways website.
“With the start of the academic year approaching, the Ministry recognises that parents are keen to confirm travel plans to accompany students needing to travel overseas to continue their education,” said Tourism Minister Kenneth Bryan.
“These additional flights are primarily for this purpose and I urge the public to please be mindful of this when making travel plans, so that those with a genuine need to travel are able to secure a booking.”
The Ministry of Tourism is also reminding inbound travellers to visit Travel Cayman and complete the online form before they arrive on island.
