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."

Late last month, the two carriers finalised and executed an agreement that facilitated the transfer of Caribbean Star's assets to LIAT. That asset purchase agreement did not include the remaining five aircrafts leased by Caribbean Star, which are expected to be transferred to LIAT in a separate transaction expected to coincide with today's closure of the carrier, owned by Antigua-based Texan billionaire, Sir Allen Stanford."
