(CMR) Caribbean Journal has awarded the Owen Roberts International Airport the accolade of Caribbean Airport of the Year award for 2020 in the sixth edition of the Caribbean Travel Awards.
The awards honors hotels, destinations, experiences and, most importantly, people that make the Caribbean the greatest travel destination on earth,” said Alexander Britell, editor and publisher of Caribbean Journal. This year’s Caribbean Travel Awards includes winners across 21 categories, selected by Caribbean Journal’s editorial staff and its network of contributors.
The publication noted that:
“It’s been a spectacular year for Cayman Islands tourism so far this year, and that means thousands of tourists who have been lucky enough to arrive in the brand-new terminal at Owen Roberts International Airport in Grand Cayman, which was officially opened by Princes Charles earlier this year. It’s a major addition for the destination, with a clean, sleek interior, a stunning turtle-shell exterior and a terrifically run airport operation (and a terrific duty-free experience, too).”
Overall this past year has been exceptional for the Caribbean as a whole with stayover tourist arrivals trending well within the region. The magazine notes that there's a “palpable excitement both from the investors and risk-takers who continue to bet big on the Caribbean to the people who ensure every day that travelers have unforgettable experiences.”
