Cayman 27 – ARCHIVE

More planes from US to Cuba. Less tourists coming here?

An historic moment in air travel, as the United States and Cuba signed an agreement authorising daily US commercial flights to the communist-ruled island for the first time in more than 50 years.

The deal allows up to 110 daily flights to 10 destinations in Cuba, with about 20 of them to the capital Havana, where authorities have ordered renovations to double the capacity of Jose Marti airport.

But what exactly does that mean for Cayman? More US tourists will be visiting our near neighbours in the coming months, could that mean less, coming here?

Tourism Councillor Joey Hew joins Tammi Sulliman to give his thoughts.
