Talks are underway to establish a Cayman Airways flight from Florida to Cuba via Cayman Brac as early as next year, according to Tourism Minister Moses Kirkconnell. Preparations for the processing of international flights have been underway which includes an x-ray machine for checked baggage. "Our goal is to be completed in February, so that Cayman Airwatys can have flights coming in and out of the Brac on the Cuba route," Mr. Kirkconnell told the Caymanian Compass.
With this added influx of travelers, investors may consider a new hotel venture at the Divi Tiara site. which Neil van Niekerk, president of the Sister Islands Tourism Association, said Cayman Brac has sorely needed for several years. "The Brad has needed a new hotel since the Divi Tiara Beach Resort closed in 2007." Mr. van Niekerk said. "I understand they would be interested in investing and rebuilding at that site if the airlift was there."
