Airport Expansion

Postby KarenS » Sun May 07, 2006 7:38 am

From Cayman Net News: "The Owen Roberts International Airport is earmarked for a $50 million expansion, which will see it triple its size and passenger capacity, according to an official of the Cayman Islands Airport Authority (CIAA).

Senior Manager of Engineering and Projects, Brian Tomlinson, disclosed that the terminal and car park at the Island’s main airport would undergo major development in the next two years.

Mr Tomlinson said the terminal building would increase from 85,000 square feet to 244,000 square feet to include separate international and domestic arrival and departure areas.

With an anticipated 1.225 million users annually, the authorities have divided the structure to allow for international travellers on the first floor while domestic travellers will be on the ground floor.

A third level will be added to the facility for the purpose of international visitor arrival and to accommodate six aircraft boarding bridges ‚Äď a first for the Island. "
