The first thing you might realise touching down in Cayman is the sight of your family and friends, blowing kisses and waving from the gallery but this time it’s goodbye forever.
In January the Cayman Islands Airports Authority ( (C.I.A.A) will close down the “A-shaped” waving gallery at the airport as operators say the structure does not comply with international security standards.
Also waving good-bye to the gallery is Airports Authority C.E.O Albert Anderson who said in a written statement:
“The waving gallery has been an integral part of the airport for many years and while we are saddened that it will no longer be an area for the public to greet friends and family, we realize this is a necessary step that we must take in order to have a world-class airport facility.” Mr. Anderson said.
Cayman 27’s Mario Grey went to the Airport to see how people feel about removing the waving gallery.
