[BlueSky] New airline aims to connect Caribbean with Latin America
17/03/2015

A new airline which seeks to bring the Caribbean and Latin America closer will soon be launched.

BlueSky Airlines, based in the Cayman Islands, is headed by Chairman and Acting CEO is Kenny Rankin, owner of the Paramount Group, a major conglomerate in the Cayman Islands.

A release from the company says Rankin will be joined by a leadership team that includes Chief Operating Officer Peter Schmid, Chief Commercial Officer Mark Ellinger, Chief Pilot and Head of Training Ian Cheese and director of marketing Tara Ebanks, among others.

BlueSky plans to fly to destinations across the Caribbean, from Nassau to Cartagena, Colombia. Their mission is to connect the Caribbean and Latin America in a more convenient and simple way.

Subject to Government approval, the company’s plan is to operate direct flights from Grand Cayman to Santo Domingo, Montego Bay, Panama City, Cartagena, Cancun and Nassau. From those locations, the carrier will then offer “onward flights to Tortola, Bogota and San Jose.”

BlueSky’s fleet will include a Bombardier Dash-8 Q400 NextGen turboprop aircraft.

BlueSky is expected to begin operations in the middle of the year.
