The Cayman Islands Airports Authority is inviting companies with experience operating luxury lounges to design, construct and operate a full-service passenger lounge at Owen Roberts International Airport.

The redeveloped airport was officially opened by Prince Charles and Duchess Camilla in March. Further renovations and development of the airport, including an expanded runway and drainage works, are also planned.

The CIAA is now seeking proposals for a new passenger lounge from professional firms that can demonstrate they already operate at least one lounge, preferably at an airport.

The authority is inviting bidders to attend a pre-proposal meeting and site tour of the lounge space at the airport on Thursday, 8 Aug. at 9am.

Interested parties are invited to RSVP by Tuesday, 6 Aug. to [email protected]

  1. New passenger lounge, expanded runway, BUT NO jet bridges. Absolutely makes NO sense. An up to date airport that still utilizes stairs to disembark from an aircraft, is still an antiquated airport. Step up Cayman Airport Authorities.
