(RCN) WestJet is set to return to the Cayman Islands, in December, the Cayman Compass reported. “We remain committed to serving the Cayman Islands throughout the winter.” Madison Kruger, media relations advisor at WestJet told the Cayman Compass.

The Canadian airline is the fourth airline to confirm service back to the Cayman Islands, joining fellow Canadian airline Air Canada. JetBlue made its return to the Cayman Islands from JFK Airport on Saturday, October 15th, Loop Cayman reported. The service is run twice weekly on Tuesdays and Saturdays.

From November 20th, all travelers who are verifiably vaccinated will no longer have to complete a course of isolation. Travelers will still need to register with Travel Cayman. It is unknown if travelers will need to get a PCR or Rapid Antigen Test before arriving in the Cayman Islands. (RELATED: Rapid Antigen tests to arrive in Cayman.)

“COVID-19 will be with us for the foreseeable future but we know there is no better time than now to continue with our reopening plan. Our guiding principles will remain the same: safeguarding the health of our community, protecting our health services, and being guided by the best data and science.” Premier Panton stated in a CIG Press Conference.

“Now is the time for us to come together as one Cayman and embrace the reopening of our country as an opportunity for a fresh start. However, this is going to require corporate responsibility, personal responsibility, and a sense of collective responsibility. We are moving forward with a safe and sustained reopening that protects our healthcare and education systems.”

The Premier also encouraged those who are not vaccinated to go get the Covid Vaccine, as the border re-opening puts them at risk.
