Cayman Airways will be joining the Cayman Islands Tourist Office at World Travel Market 2007 as it seeks to develop traffic for the Cayman Islands from the UK and Europe. John Wrightington, VP Commercial will be attending World Travel Market along with new Regional Manager Europe, Lynne Morris. The airline’s strategy is to increase its presence in the UK and Europe through close co-operation with European airline partners and the travel trade, as well as raising its consumer profile.
Comments John Wrightington: “We will be revealing the new branding for Cayman Airways as well as announcing new connectivity with the UK and Europe which brings much needed new capacity to the islands.” The airline has been developing a closer working relationship with European airline partners and has just launched interline e-ticketing with British Airways. Wrightington adds, “We are working closely with UK airline partners to offer competitive through fares, through check in and e-ticketing, as well as efficient transit procedures. This will provide the UK with seamless connections and allow the distribution of through fares in all classes.”
Cayman Airways has also introduced an enhanced business class service on all jet routes with upgraded catering and full choice of complimentary beverages and cocktails including wines. “Our business class service allows our interline partners to offer a premium through service which will be particularly attractive to high end leisure as well as business travellers,” comments Wrightington.
The airline will be meeting with key industry partners at World Travel Market to update them on the new connections and services.
