The Cayman Islands Airports Authority (CIAA), which operates the Owen Roberts International Airport (ORIA) on Grand Cayman and the Charles Kirkconnell International Airport (CKIA) on Cayman Brac, announced today that an upgrade to the ‘pay parking’ system at ORIA has been implemented to provide an improved airport experience to the traveling public.
Airport customers exiting the Short-Term or Long-Term parking lots at Owen Roberts International Airport will now have the added convenience of being able to pay their parking fees by credit or debit card at the exit machines. The exit machines accept Mastercard and Visa cards and are equipped with an intercom help button should customers require assistance from an Airport Ground Transportation Officer. Customers may also pay their parking fees by cash at any one of the pay stations located inside the main airport terminal.
A drop-off zone in the Short-Term parking lot has been allocated for those persons dropping off departing passengers. Drivers who are picking up arriving passengers must also park in the Short-term parking lot. Parking is free for up to five minutes after which time the standard parking rates apply, which come into effect from 1 February 2022.
The standard parking rates at Owen Roberts International Airport are:
0-5 minutes free
Over 5 minutes – CI$2.00 per hour (or part thereof)
Daily rate – CI$48.00
Long-Term Parking: CI$7.00 per day (or part thereof)
Only authorised public transportation and tour operators are permitted to drop off or pick up passengers at curb-side in front of the main terminal.
