Cayman Postal service release stamps for Cayman Airways Ltd 50th anniversary

The Postal Service releases a new collection of four stamps to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Cayman Airways Ltd (CAL).

The new stamps, in value denominations of 25¢, 80¢, $1 and $1.50, depict aircrafts in CAL’s current fleet.

The 25¢ stamp features the Boeing 737-300, which CAL has operated for several years. The 80¢ stamps features the Boeing 737-800, which was added to the fleet in late 2016 and marked the start of CAL’s fleet modernisation plan. The other two stamps features aircrafts used for Sister Islands Service, with the De Havilland DHC 6 Twin Otter on the $1 stamp and the Saab 340B+ on the $1.50 stamp. A self-adhesive booklet of the 25¢ stamps and a $2 Souvenir Sheet are also included in the issue.

Additionally, a First Day Cover (FDC) is being issued with the stamps at a sale price of $4.35 for collectors.

The set also provides interesting historical information about Cayman Airway’s fleet, as well as details about its fleet modernisation plan.

The stamps were created in collaboration with Cayman Airways, and are available for purchase at all post offices in the Cayman Islands.

The FDC issue is also available at the Philatelic Bureau at the Seven Mile Beach Post Office located in West Shore Centre, at the General Post Office and the Hell Post Office.
