(CNS Local Life): As part of his continuing familiarisation tour of the Cayman Islands, Governor Anwar Choudhury toured Owen Roberts International Airport on Grand Cayman Friday, 6 April during which he received a presentation on the airport’s ongoing expansion. Discussions during the tour focussed on the ongoing expansion of the airport, security including border security and the need to reduce wait times for entering and departing passengers, especially on Saturdays.

Choudhury also spent some time chatting with incoming visitors as well as meeting Senior Customs Officer Malachi Powery and his sniffer dog Jack, a chocolate Labrador from the UK, who is the newest Customs K-9 unit member.

Choudhury, accompanied by his head of staff Matthew Forbes, took the tour with Civil Aviation Authority officials, led by Managing Director Albert Anderson as well as Customs Collector Charles Clifford, Acting Chief Immigration Officer Bruce Smith, Chief Project Manager Peter Ranger and Senior Project Manager Roy Williams, the latter two from the Public Works Department.
