Cayman Islands Department of Tourism have asked us to share with you a link to Wednesday morning’s Fourth of July special, that aired on the Good Morning Texas show, prominently featuring the Cayman Islands.

Good Morning Texas is the ABC affiliate station in Dallas, Texas and the special segment, which was in support of the new Cayman Airways non-stop service to Dallas Fort Worth, highlights many of Cayman’s tourism offerings. Featured attractions include Stingray City, Cayman Turtle Farm, the Cayman Motor Museum and Cayman Islands Helicopter Tours, among others. The host Carrie McClure also introduces many of the other segments from the crystal clear waters of the Cayman Islands.

The link to the clip of the Good Morning Texas show is below, which attracted a viewership of 55,753 people in the local Dallas area.

Amid rousing applause from onlookers at the check-in gate, representatives from the Ministry and Department of Tourism joined officials from Cayman Airways for a pre-flight ribbon cutting ceremony, marking the launch of its seasonal non-stop service from Grand Cayman to Dallas Fort Worth. “Today is a special day for Cayman Airways and for the Cayman Islands tourism industry,” remarked Hon. W. McKeeva Bush, Premier and Minister of Tourism. “This direct service will provide an easy and convenient option for travellers wishing to travel to the Cayman Islands for business or leisure travel and as such, it plays a key strategic role in our ongoing quest to boost incremental tourism to the Cayman Islands.”

Expressing his support for the new seasonal route that is expected to further solidify the longstanding relationship with Texas, Premier Bush affirmed that with the level of diversity inherent in the Texas market, visitors from that area are expected to be duly impressed with the variety of land and sea based attractions on offer in the Cayman Islands.  “The Dallas area has proven to be an area with strong growth potential” the Premier continued “and we are looking forward to the opportunities this route will create in the coming months.”

With the inclusion of Dallas Fort Worth, Cayman Airways now provides service to and from six US gateways and to four countries outside of the USA. Operating from June through to September, the service is expected to be particularly popular with divers wishing to explore the Cayman Islands underwater world, since Texas ranks highly with respect to the number of persons gaining new diver certifications.


Effective June 23rd through September 2nd, 2012, the Dallas route will operate twice weekly, on Saturdays and Sundays. On Saturdays, KX320 departs Grand Cayman at 3:30pm and arrives in Dallas at 7:30pm. On Sundays, KX321 departs Dallas at 9am and arrives in Grand Cayman at 1pm. Passengers wishing to travel to or from Dallas Fort Worth can contact Cayman Airways on 949 2311.
