This is part of a series of blog entries on how to get to countries and places. Here is a link to the index. I plan to eventually cover every country and some other places. If you have a request for a particular country or place please use the email me link at top right, or leave a comment.
The Cayman Islands are a British Overseas Territory in the Caribbean, just south of Cuba and northwest of Jamaica.
You can visit Cayman Islands on a cruise ship, or by air. Airlines flying to George Town include:
- Star Alliance - Air Canada, Continental, US Airways
- Oneworld - American, British Airways
- Sky Team - Delta
- Other selected - Cayman Airways
TIP Cayman Islands are a useful stop on a Oneworld RTW or award ticket. The prohibition on mileage earning and redemption for American AAdvantage on British Airways trans-Atlantic flights and BA Executive Club on American trans-Atlantic flights does not apply for flights via the Caribbean.
UPDATED November 2009 - Continental switch from Sky Team to Star Alliance. No change to advice.
