Delta Air Lines will operate a seasonal nonstop flight between New York City, NY and Grand Cayman, starting June 20, 2020.
In a press release, the Atlanta-based carrier announced the added service between Grand Cayman’s Owen Roberts International Airport (GCM) and New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) on Saturdays through August 20, 2020 on its 160-seat Boeing 737-800 jets.
“We are excited to welcome increased airlift from New York City to Grand Cayman this summer, particularly with a long-time international partner like Delta Air Lines that has an extensive network of travelers in the tristate region,” said Hon. Minister of Tourism, Mr. Moses Kirkconnell. “With Delta’s new seasonal service and the Department of Tourism’s annual, destination-wide summer promotions, we are poised to provide even more New Yorkers with a memorable and easily-accessible Cayman Islands vacation this summer.”
Delta already serves Grand Cayman (GCM) with year-round service from Atlanta and with seasonal, Saturday-only service from Detroit (DTW) and Minneapolis/St. Paul (MSP).
“Delta is New York’s No. 1 airline, and this service to the Cayman Islands joins the ranks of our more than 200 daily departures to more than 80 destinations in 30 countries,” said Chuck Imhof, Delta Vice President — New York Sales. “Families and vacationers seeking escape from the big city this summer will find the perfect adventure in this culturally rich island getaway.”
Flight DL 0489 with service from JFK to GCM will depart at 10:55am and arrive at 1:37pm on Saturdays. Flight DL 0490 with service from GCM to JFK will depart at 2:50pm and arrive at 7:28pm on Saturdays.
“Each new flight introduced to Grand Cayman provides visitors with more options to explore our beautiful destination while creating additional tourism and business opportunities among our valued airline partners,” said Ms. Rosa Harris, Director of Tourism. “We thank Delta for continuing to serve and invest in the Cayman Islands, and look forward to bringing even more travelers from the tristate area to experience our sun, sand, sea and Caymankind vibes this summer.”
