Cayman Airways, the Cayman Islands’ national airline since 1968, has announced plans to add new seasonal nonstop flights between Grand Cayman and Denver, Colorado, beginning March 2, 2019. Since the company will be using four new Boeing 737 Max 8 aircraft, the trips will be the longest scheduled commercial flights the airline has ever operated.

According to the Diving Equipment and Marketing Association, Colorado has the sixth-largest population of scuba divers in the U.S. and is rated as the fastest-growing state for scuba divers since 2010. Cayman Airways says this statistic makes Denver appropriate to the Cayman Airways network for growing dive tourism for the Cayman Islands.

Denver is also celebrating the new CAL route, since it is the Colorado capital’s first and only Caribbean-based airline to have non-stop service there. Officials at Denver International Airport says the city is the second-largest U.S. market that lacks nonstop service to Grand Cayman, although more than 200 passengers each week travel to the tropical destination. DEN officials say there has been over 10 percent growth in demand for travel between Denver and Grand Cayman this past year.
