SEATTLE, WASHINGTONCayman Airways, after having been the first Caribbean-based airline to have introduced the Boeing 737 MAX 8 aircraft to its fleet in late 2018, has today taken delivery of its fourth B737 MAX 8 aircraft from Air Lease Corporation (ALC) at the Boeing Delivery Center in Seattle, Washington.

This delivery, combined with the retirement in 2021 of the National Flag Carrier’s last remaining Boeing 737-300 aircraft which were in excess of 25 years old, further cements its position as having the newest jet fleet in the region at this time.

This is the last delivery of four aircraft that were committed to by Cayman Airways by way of operating leases from ALC in June of 2016 after a competitive tendering process and marks the conclusion of a five-year-long Fleet Modernization Program.

This fourth brand new, state-of-the-art Boeing 737 MAX 8 aircraft, with registration mark VP-CIZ, arrived in Grand Cayman on January 20, 2022, and Cayman Airways expects to commission this aircraft for service by February 2022.
