CAL boosts Honduras route

| 22/10/2009

(CNS): Starting next week, Cayman Airways Limited (CAL) is increasing service to La Ceiba, Honduras with two nonstop Boeing 737 jet flights a week. Acting CEO Fabian Whorms says the company is looking forward to serving this Caribbean coastal town in the long term. “Honduras and Cayman have long been linked by the settlement of their people in each other’s communities, so we are very pleased to be able to provide greater frequency of non-stop jet flights between our homelands,” he said.

Starting 29 October, the new twice-weekly non-stop jet service from Grand Cayman to La Ceiba will operate on Thursdays and Mondays. Flight KX 824 departing Grand Cayman at 1pm and arriving in La Ceiba at 1:20pm. The return flight KX 825 departs La Ceiba at 2:20pm, arriving on Grand Cayman at 4:40pm. There is a one-hour time difference between the two gateways.

To celebrate the launch of this extended service, roundtrip airfares between Grand Cayman and La Ceiba start from US$220 (CI$184.80), not including taxes and fees. Travel must be completed by 7 December, 2009 with this fare. Also for a limited time, Cayman Airways customers travelling to La Ceiba can take advantage of the airline’s current “Three Bags Free” offer and 50% bonus air miles now through 31 October. Some conditions apply on all offers and sale fares.

To book online visit or call Cayman Airways reservations on 345-949-2311, or your local travel agent.

    Here we go, more Cayman marriages gone to hell again.

  2. what a mess! says:

    About time!

    This opportunity has long existed. Instead Govt. has wasted untold millions on New York, Chicago, Boston, Washington DC…where US carriers have and will always dominate. Govt. has also spent untold millions on establishing offices (with associated costs including foreign staff and their benefits) with NO value for money. It would make more sense to utilize electronic and other advertising in such areas.

    Honduras has long been a golden oppotunity to tap an already existing pool, with little expenditure needed.

    Excellent move CAL…long overdue!

    Perfect. More routes to a politically instable, gang dominated, violent, drug supported country. 

    I am willing to bet that pretty much anybody arrested for any violent crime or gun offence in cayman is Caymanian, Jamaican, or Honduran. Anybody want to look at the stats?

      Are you writting from Honduras or Cayman? At least they are trying to follow their constitution. We live in a glass house now so go easy with the stones.

    Excellent, another escape route! Hey could someone please take some of your iguanas back with them when they are going?Thanks.

    • Anonymouse says:

      Why take the iguanas back on the plane.????????

      Bring the Honduranians here and they will consume them locally. Nothing like a good meal of fresh Iguana. Make sure you have plenty yuca, plantains and raw cabbage available.

      CAL will benefit from the air fares too.

      Now Boooooooy! Thats a good idea.

    Thanks CAL. Proves that the Honduras route was another wise decision by the PPM’s former Minister Charles Clifford.

      We all know Chuckie was the best thing that ever happened to the Airline.

      The firing of Caymanians in management positions, and replacing them with expats.

      The multi-million dollar Lufthansa audit, (How many millions did that cost)

      Money wasted on opening routes that are still not open.

      What did he get for all the great things he did???

      He was replaced in the House by some of the very Caymanian people he put out of their jobs.

      Talk about getting credit for a job well done.

      Well he can always come on CNS under the guise of Anonymous and bash.
