Clifford goes to Washington

| 21/12/2008

(CNS): Washington DC already provides a large percentage of visitors to the Cayman Islands, the Minister of Tourism told an audience in the US capital before they boarded the first direct flight by Cayman Airways. He said Cayman had confidence that the new route from the National Flag carrier would provide business opportunities for both places.

Launching the inaugural flight between Dulles and Owen Roberts International on 13 December, he said the addition of a direct, non-stop air service underscored the strategic importance of the north east corridor for the Cayman Islands. “The launch of this new route is a symbol of confidence in the potential business and tourism opportunities between Washington DC and the Cayman Islands,” he said.

"The importance of Washington DC is obvious. As the capital city in the western world – the DC area already provides a large percentage of our visitors to the Cayman Islands.  This new route will simply enhance the business opportunities between the two locations and will make it easier for those persons who are traveling on business and who wish to bring their families with them to experience the warmth and tranquility of the Cayman Islands.”

Clifford was speaking at the end of a week-long the trip to Washington where he had been promoting the new route. He also met with the media in the region. In a taped segment for the morning news on WUSA-9, which aired on 21 December, Clifford spoke with Anchor Mike Walter on the importance of Cayman Airways’ new DC gateway, attractions on all three islands and more.
