Their Royal Highnesses, the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall are set to officially open Grand Cayman’s newly expanded Owen Roberts International Airport (IATA: GCM) as part of a visit to the Cayman Islands from March 27-28, 2019.

The expansion project has tripled the size of Grand Cayman’s airport facilities, allowing the island to accommodate close to 2.5 million passengers and international travellers. The airport will include an expanded departure hall, food court, VIP lounge, restaurant, additional restroom facilities, children’s play area, mother and baby room and a variety of concessions.

The official airport opening comes days before British Airways switches to its summer schedule on April 6, and operates a Saturday departure from London Heathrow to Grand Cayman replacing the Sunday service.
