Airfare to Cayman Islands
Being one of the more popular countries in the Caribbean, it’s usually pretty easy to get discount airfare into the Cayman Islands. Several major airlines have frequent flights into the country, and that competition helps keep airfares to the Cayman Airlines low. The main entry point is the Owen Roberts International Airport (code: GCM) near George Town on Grand Cayman.
Which airlines have flights to the Cayman Islands?
American Airlines has the most service through their hub in Miami, and they often have the lowest airfare. Continental has frequent flights through their Houston hub, and Delta goes often through their massive Atlanta hub. A few other major airlines also have flights to the Cayman Islands, but not frequently so the airfare is often higher.
Air Canada has direct flights to the Caymans through Toronto, and British Airways has flights from London as well. There are a few other smaller airlines serving the region, but the best discount airfare is usually on one of these airlines mentioned.
Saving money on your flight to the Cayman Islands
The peak season is the weeks around Christmas and New Years, so book as early as possible if you are hoping to come then. You can usually get cheaper airfare in early December as well as in April if you are that flexible. Weekend flights in January through March are usually the most expensive, so if you can fly on Tuesday or Wednesday you can sometimes get discount airfare even toward the last minute.
