CAL prepares for Gustav

| 26/08/2008

(CNS): Cayman Airways has announced that it will publish a new schedule and special rates if and when a hurricane warning is issued for the Cayman Islands. Track forecasts for Hurricane Gustav now indicate that the Cayman Islands could be facing a category 3 hurricane by Friday with the Sister Islands most adversely affected.

According to CAL, change fees/penalties are being waived for all passengers travelling to or from any Cayman Airways gateway during 26 – 31 August. Only two changes per ticket are permitted. For those customers who decide to cancel their reservations, a credit voucher for the full value of the ticket may be issued. This must be issued before departure of original travel date. The voucher is good for travel only on Cayman Airways and is valid for a year from the date of issuance.

Cayman Airways will publish an alternate flight schedule that will replace the current schedule at the time a hurricane warning is issued for the Cayman Islands. The airline’s primary objective will be to transport people off of Grand Cayman (and between the Sister Islands) to South Florida.

The one-way Hurricane fares for such a schedule will be US$250.00 (including taxes) for Grand Cayman to South Florida and US$75.00 (including taxes) between Grand Cayman and the Sister Islands. Passengers will be able to book on these flights using all normal means including Cayman Airways’ website, reservations call centre and ticket office and also through other travel agents. Passengers are strongly encouraged to use Web Check-in, now available at

Passengers are asked to ensure that all travel documents are in order, including visas, re-entry stamps and all other immigration requirements. Due to the uncertainty of the weather situation surrounding Hurricane Gustav, for the latest and most accurate flight information passengers are advised to check the Cayman Airways website or with the Cayman Airways Reservations Department at 949-2311.
