Cayman Airways has been notified that the Owen Roberts International Airport (ORIA) runway on Grand Cayman is currently closed due to runway damage.
Cayman Airways understands that the runway closure is expected to be until at least 6:45pm this evening, while the Cayman Islands Airports Authority (CIAA) conducts inspections and makes the necessary arrangements to reopen.
As a result of the ORIA runway closure on Grand Cayman, Cayman Airways flight KX883 from La Ceiba was diverted to Cayman Brac, and flight KX203 from Tampa was diverted to Miami.
Miami flights KX106 and KX107 this evening are currently delayed until further notice.
Cayman Airways Express flight KX424 from Little Cayman was diverted to Cayman Brac, and KX4725 from Grand Cayman to Little Cayman will be cancelled due to daylight restrictions at Little Cayman’s Edward Bodden Airfield.
Cayman Airways will continue to provide operational updates as soon as they are available.
