New Stair Lift to Improve Service to Passengers with Reduced Mobility

12 September 2011

The Cayman Islands Airports Authority (CIAA) is pleased to announce the implementation of enhanced enplaning and deplaning processes at Owen Roberts International Airport (ORIA) for Passengers with Reduced Mobility (PRM) in the form of Ambistair Stair Lifts.
With the CIAA's approval, Fixed Base Operator and Ground Handling Service Provider, Island Air, now operates two Ambistair Stair Lifts which give airlines the ability to provide passengers with reduced mobility a safer and more comfortable experience when embarking or disembarking aircraft in Grand Cayman. The Ambistair design, which is based on the wheelchair lifts used in homes across the world, has been modified to allow access on the same aircraft stairs used by able-bodied passengers and is approved for use by international aviation regulatory bodies.
