Cayman Airways and Mexico differ on alleged unpaid bill

Cayman Airways and the Mexican Airport Authority are in a dispute over an alleged unpaid bill.

Cayman Airways CEO Fabian Whorms says the alleged ‘Mexican Debt’ is a point of contention. While he did not reveal how much Mexico was asking of the national flag carrier, he did say the company won’t simply give in to the demand.

“There is a lot of carriers that got hit with this. It’s always a big topic whenever there is a Latin American conference. How do we deal with these Mexican Fees? The amount that we owe is not that significant a number in terms of things, but it’s significant enough for us to not just say write a cheque and say be done with it. On a point of principal we have to work this out,” said Mr. Whorms.

Mexico alleges Cayman Airways traveled through their air space, ten years ago, and now they are demanding payment. Mr Whorms says he cannot find any records to support these claims. He added the Mexican Debt is not a matter of urgency as none of the national flag carrier’s flight plans go through Mexican air space.
