This is the first of the airline’s four 737 MAX 8 aircraft that it has on order. All four are being leased straight from the factory by ALC. These aircraft will be replacing it’s ageing 737-300 aircraft. It is the first 737 MAX to be operated by a Caribbean airline. Cayman Airways will take on another 3 737 MAX 8 aircraft in the next 20 months, with the next one scheduled for March of 2019.
