The Massachusetts Port Authority (Massport) announced today that starting January 12, 2008 US Airways will begin offering weekly service on Saturdays between Boston Logan International Airport and the Grand Cayman Islands on Airbus A319 aircraft. Boston Logan’s $4.4 billion modernization program, including new terminals, parking facilities, roadways and airport concessions, has transformed the airport into a world-class facility capable of meeting the needs of local travelers and businesses in the 21st Century.
“Logan passengers can once again fly non-stop to the Grand Cayman Islands and avoid the hassles of connecting at a hub,” said Massport’s Director of Aviation Edward C. Freni. Service to the Grand Cayman Islands was available from Logan until last spring when Cayman Airway’s ended service. “We’re very excited to have US Airway’s resume a route that has proven to be popular with leisure travelers heading to the warmth and relaxation of the Caribbean,” said Freni.
“We’re very excited that non-stop service is returning to Boston,” said Judith Akerman, District Marketing Manager for the Cayman Islands. “Demand for Boston is strong and this service will make getting to the Cayman Islands easier and more convenient for New England travelers.”
The Grand Cayman Islands are located just 480 miles south of Miami in the western Caribbean, and consists of three islands; Grand Cayman, Cayman Brac, and Little Cayman.
Boston Logan serves as the gateway to the six-state New England region with a population of over 14 million and offers nonstop service to 81 domestic and 37 international destinations. Boston Logan also has more low fare flights than any airport in New England and in 2006 handled nearly 28 million passengers.
