WestJet launches new service to Grand Cayman holidays

Just last week WestJet announced the launch of a new, seasonal non-stop service between Toronto and Grand Cayman to take Canadian holidaymakers to Cayman Islands holidays. The inaugural flight departed from Toronto's Pearson International Airport at 9:40 a.m. EDT last Thursday 4th November 2010.

The first ever direct WestJet Airlines Jet flight from Toronto, touched down at Owen Roberts last week to a personal welcome from the country’s premier and other officials. Government has had a partnership with the airline in its sights for several years as a significant number of visitors to the Cayman Islands come from Canada. “We are absolutely delighted to welcome WestJet Airlines to the Cayman Islands and look forward to a fruitful and strategic relationship for a long time to come,” McKeeva Bush said at a reception held at the airport for WestJet executives, local dignitaries and the media.

"Grand Cayman is a little piece of paradise," said Hugh Dunleavy, WestJet Executive Vice-President, Strategy and Planning. "Guests can create their dream vacations with diving excursions, nature tours and some of the best cuisine and shopping in the Caribbean."

After a traditional ribbon-cutting ceremony the Cayman Islands government and WestJet exchanged gifts with Cayman presenting the airline with a model replica of a jet liner carved by a local artisan from Caymanite. Words of praise about the new air service taking more Canadian passengers to holidays in Cayman Islands followed.

“To say we are excited about having WestJet Airlines flying to Grand Cayman is an understatement,” said Paul Minich, country manager for the Cayman Islands Department of Tourism in Canada. “WestJet has a solid reputation built on quality customer service and attractive fares. Not surprisingly, Canadians are already seeing fares to Grand Cayman becoming much more competitive heading into this winter season so we are anticipating a very healthy uptick in our visitor arrivals.”

WestJet will fly between Toronto and Grand Cayman three times per week: each Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday.
