Good afternoon,

Thank you for joining us today for the grand re-opening of the modernized and expanded Owen Roberts International Airport.

Your Royal Highness, thank you for your graciousness in accepting the invitation to not only visit our beautiful Cayman Islands but also for officially opening our airport here on Grand Cayman.

The changes we have made to our airport are to carry us through for the next few decades as tourism numbers continue to soar with visitors looking for all the magic that these three jewels in the Caribbean Sea our beloved Cayman Islands have to offer.

The Owen Roberts International Airport is the main gateway to the Cayman Islands and all that you will experience here on Grand Cayman and Cayman Brac, from our excellent cuisine to our wonderful people.

It is my sincere hope that you enjoy your time here and return home with fond memories of these special Islands and our people.

Your visit certainly means a lot to us, and has brought back fond memories, for many, of your earlier visit here as well as the two visits by Her Majesty the Queen.

Undoubtedly your visit here on this occasion will again leave wonderful memories for those that you meet as you travel about our three Islands.

Thank you once again, Sir, for unveiling the plaque to officially open our modernized Owen Roberts International Airport. Your presence here affirms the strong relationship between the United Kingdom and The Cayman Islands.

On behalf of our people welcome and please enjoy your visit.
