Cayman Islands - Cay Compass News Online - Sister Islands need airlift

Cayman Islands - Cay Compass News Online - Sister Islands need airlift: "New aircraft that would increase the number of passengers and also allow for direct service from a United States gateway to Cayman Brac would be the best solution, Mr. Kirkconnell said.
Cayman Brac gets Cayman Airways 737 jet service four days a week and Cayman Airways Express service seven days a week with the 19–seat turbo–prop Twin Otter aircraft, which also service Little Cayman.
“The Twin Otters are the most practical plane to fly to Little Cayman with its current airstrip,” he said.
With construction on a new airport on Little Cayman scheduled to commence next January, Mr. Kirkconnell thinks the future should include larger aircraft to service the Sister Islands, like an ATR–50 or a Dash 8, both of which could handle 50 passengers."
