The Cayman Brac Airways was founded after the Cayman Islands administration bought 51% of Cayman Brac Airways, which was initiated in 1955 by LACSA, the Costarican airline, and became fully state-owned in December 1977. LACSA has served Grand Cayman as a stopover on the San José, Costa Rica and Miami line since the mid-1950s, with some services also stopping in Havana, Cuba and between Grand Cayman and Miami.
5 ] In 1965 Cayman Brac Airways (also known as CBA Airways Ltd.) operated local flights from Owen Roberts International Airport in George Town, Grand Cayman to Gerrard Smith International Airport on Cayman Brac and to Little Cayman via a flagship station and also to Montego Bay, Jamaica.
6 ] On a route Grand Cayman - Little Cayman (flag stop only) - Cayman Brac - Montego Bay a week-long flight was performed with a twin-engine Beechcraft 18-airplane. Occasionally a stopover in Little Cayman was made between Grand Cayman and Cayman Brac as flags stop.
Grand Cayman connections were offered for Lufthansa Airways to Miami and Pan Am Montego Bay connections to Miami and New York City. 1979 another BAC One-Eleven-Jet, a Hawker Siddeley 748 Turbo Propeller and a Britten-Norman Trislander Propeller engine were acquired and added to the family.
The company received funding from the Cayman Islands government, as well as newer, more advanced planes and new targets such as Chicago, Dallas Fort Worth and Havana. Four new Boeing 737 MAX 8s were launched between the end of 2018 and 2020, so that the Boeing 737-300, which is currently in operation with the company, can finally be decommissioned.
Between 2015 and 2016, Cayman Airways Express also launched the Saab 340B in conjunction with the scheduled phase-out of the DHC-6 Twin Otter 300 range as part of Cayman Airways' overall modernisation plans. The Boeing 737-300's retiring period began on Wednesday, November 8, 2017, with the first plane leaving the area.
The Cayman Airways network operates to 12 airports in the USA, Jamaica and Cuba as well as Honduras. This initial layout was used by the Cayman Islands Customs on luggage labels and became the Ministry of Tourism emblem, then managed by Eric Bergstrom. In 1978 Captain Wilbur Thompson, then Chief Pilot of Cayman Airways, added the reddish flowing shawl to Sir Turtle.
The Cayman Airways Coporate Headquarters is in George Town, 91 Owen Roberts Drive, almost opposite the Cayman Airways Airline Airfield on 54 Owen Roberts Drive. The Owen Roberts Drive is the major street to Owen Roberts International Airport in Grand Cayman. This is Airways International.
