Airport Operations Manager Robert Harris leads Cayman Prep and High School students and faculty on a tour of the control tower

(CNS Local Life): A group of Year 10 students from a travel and tourism class at Cayman Prep and High School recently toured Owen Roberts International Airport (ORIA), courtesy of the Cayman Islands Airports Authority (CIAA). Members of various CIAA teams provided the students with a practical learning experience during the visit.

The students were given guided tours through ORIA and the general aviation terminals, which included a visit to the airport control tower, and an inside look at the various departments, functions and processes of airport operations.

Nicoela McCoy, Civil Aviation Authority of the Cayman Islands (CAACI) Deputy Director-General, Economic Regulation & Administration, organised the tour. “The students and teachers not only enjoyed but also learned much about the operations of an international airport,” she said in a press release. “This was the first IGCSE O Level travel and tourism class group to have this experience in recent times and it will probably lead to many other annual requests.”

The students are beginning a study module on tourism infrastructure and are set to sit their external IGCSE exams in travel and tourism next year.
