Statement from HE the Governor on Cancelled Nicaraguan Flight

It is with regret that the Nicaraguan Government have this morning closed their borders and will not be accepting the return of their citizens. This is incredibly disappointing given that we had close to 160 people booked on Cayman Airways flights to Managua tomorrow. The Nicaraguan Government will reconsider the opening of their borders once the global crisis has eased.

I appreciate that many people who booked on those flights may now find themselves stuck on Island without accommodation and funds. If you are in need of urgent support please contact as follows:
