unitedairlinesGRAND CAYMAN, Dec. 11, 2015 – United Airlines is celebrating 15 years of service to Grand Cayman. The airline operates weekly flights (on Saturdays) between Grand Cayman International Airport and its Houston Intercontinental Airport hub, with onward connections to cities throughout the United States and the world. The flights are operated using Boeing 737-800 aircraft with 154 seats — 20 in United First, 51 Economy Plus seats featuring additional legroom, and 96 in Economy.

United began serving Grand Cayman in 2000 using modern, fuel-efficient and eco-friendly Boeing 737 Next Generation aircraft.

“We are proud of this anniversary celebration in Grand Cayman,” commented Millie Uriarte, United’s Director of Sales for Latin America and the Caribbean. “United continues to be committed to this market and we thank our customers and the travel industry, who have made United their preferred airline over all these years.”

United organized a special treat for their customers. Passengers departing on the flight to New York/Newark received homemade sugarcoated cookies in appreciation for their support.
