On the 28th, Cayman Airways also took delivery of their first MAX 8 to modernize their fleet.  The order of four aircraft will be replacing the existing 737-300s the airline is currently operating.

The fleet of 737-300 were acquired in 2014 with the intent of being replaced with more efficient aircraft.  They also fly one 737-800.
