The CIAA mascot, “Calypso”, introduced for Valentine’s Day

(CNS): The new mascot of the Cayman Islands Airports Authority’s (CIAA) was on hand to offer Valentine’s greetings to travellers lining up at Owen Roberts International Airport. The six-foot-tall Cayman parrot named “Calypso”, CIAA’s latest customer-service and marketing initiative, took photos with passengers and received “high fives” as he made his way through the airport.

One young passenger even ran up to the giant bird to give him a hug as she was entering the arrivals hall with her family.

In addition to Calypso greeting passengers, CIAA’s customer-service team passed out cupcakes and candies to passengers, and encouraged them to write notes on a designated wall in the departure hall area to share Valentine’s Day messages.

The Airports Authority hopes the mascot will help alleviate the stress of any disruption to travellers caused by the airport-expansion project, when construction inside the main terminal begins later this year. The mascot will also be used on signage and the CIAA’s website to communicate progress reports and updates on the construction work.
