Cayman Airways’ fourth B737-8 aircraft, VP-CIZ, departed the Boeing Delivery Center in Seattle, Washington at approximately 9am this morning, with an estimated arrival time in Grand Cayman at 5:32 pm this evening. The aircraft, which is accomplishing the flight nonstop, is in the command of Captain Perry Panton, alongside First Officer Troy McCoy.

Representing the Cayman Airways Executive Team is VP Flight Operations, Captain Dave Scott, along with Cayman Airways Board Members: Dr. John-Paul Clarke, Deputy Chairman; Capt. Kris Bergstrom, Director; Robert Hurlstone, Director; and Stefanie Ebanks, Director. Nanalie Cover is also attending as Administrative and Recording Secretary. Assisting in the cabin are Cabin Crew Members Maryory Maza and Shean Boothe.

Members of the airline’s Acceptance Team who are also on board include: Carton Tom Saldeba, Senior Quality Manager, Maintenance and Engineering; Austin Ferguson, Engineering Manager; Christopher McCoy, Deputy Maintenance Production Manager; Caesar Sanchez, Maintenance Engineer; and Alexander Ramirez, Maintenance Engineer.

A special ribbon cutting was held in Seattle before the aircraft’s departure. 


Captain Perry Panton and First Officer Troy McCoy will be doing an over-fly at the Charles Kirkconnell International Airport (CKIA) in Cayman Brac at approximately 5pm today, so residents are encouraged to go out and catch a glimpse of our country’s newest jet aircraft, VP-CIZ!

Residents in Little Cayman will also have the chance to see the aircraft as it passes over on its way to Grand Cayman where Captain Panton will also over-fly Owen Roberts International Airport (ORIA) to show off to Grand Cayman residents before making the plane’s first and historic landing – the arrival of VP-CIZ in the Cayman Islands concludes the airline’s current five-year Fleet Modernization Plan which has seen Cayman Airways garner the accolade of having the newest jet fleet in the Caribbean at this time, after also being the first Caribbean-based airline to operate brand new Boeing 737-8 jet aircraft!
