Grand Cayman Island Owen Roberts Airport (GCM)
History, Facts and Overview
(George Town, Cayman Islands)
In 1952, the Cayman Islands saw the arrival of the much-needed Owen Roberts International Airport, named after a famous aviator of that time. Strategically built next to George Town and Half Way Pond, the airport quickly grew in stature and is today amongst western Caribbean's biggest and most important airports.
Various shops, fast-food outlets, a cafe and restaurants are all onsite at Grand Cayman Island Owen Roberts Airport, along with cashpoints and an auto-exchange machine. Airport business travellers will find some limited facilities in the VIP Lounge, but nearby hotels cater for business needs more adequately.
The Courtyard Grand Cayman Hotel has good business facilities with a meeting room and is situated in the popular resort of Seven Mile Beach, 6 miles / 10 km north-west of the airport.
