Cayman Airways Limited (CAL) said it will be standardising its various baggage fee charges for the first two checked bags on all international flights, to a fixed rate of US$25 each, as of February 1, 2023.
“The airline’s standard weight allowance will remain as one of the most generous in the industry at 55lbs per bag,” CAL said in a release.
“This adjustment in standardising baggage fee charges will bring a slight reduction (down by US$0-10) to baggage fees in some markets, and a slight increase (up by US$0-5) in others,” the airline said.
The existing baggage allowances and fees for domestic flights between Grand Cayman and Cayman Brac and Little Cayman will remain unchanged.
Business Class passengers will continue to receive three free checked bags on all routes. Sir Turtle Rewards Platinum Level Members will also continue to receive two free checked bags, while Sir Turtle Rewards Gold Level Members will receive the first checked bag free.
Similarly, Sir Turtle Club members continue to receive a complimentary first bag on every flight. It said the airline’s already-low rates for any additional checked bags are unchanged.
“Our newly standardised checked-bag fee for the first and second bag remains substantially lower than industry standard fees, as every effort has been made to keep our baggage rates as reasonable as possible for our valued passengers,” explained Cayman Airways President and CEO, Fabian Whorms.
