Travel Cayman also said in a release on Tuesday that many airlines like British Airways have been taking bookings and advertising for the bookings for the flight that the Cayman Islands does not approve.

Kenneth Bryan, the Tourism Minister, said he is sympathetic to the ongoing situation. “We understand the frustrations that travellers must face when it comes to ghost flights, particularly parents of students returning from the UK,” he said.

He urged the public to check official government channels before making reservations, as the department has not approved any British Airways advertised flights.
