Cayman Brac Airport Manager Appointed

2 May 2024

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 Joshua Burke has been appointed to CKIA Airport Manager, effective 1 May 2024.

Joshua joined the CIAA on 14 October 2002 and has over 21 years of experience in air traffic. With several competency certifications in Air Traffic Control under his wing during his long-standing aviation career, Joshua also has the additional rating of ATS Assessor/Examiner for both CKIA and ORIA added to his ATC License, along with his current rating as an OJT Instructor, making him one of only four controllers with these ratings in the Cayman Islands.

Joshua has acted in the capacity of CKIA Airport Manager many times in the past, gaining invaluable exposure to the role that would this day become his, and stated, “I am very excited for the opportunity as it has always been something that I have aspired to achieve whilst following in the footsteps of my mentor Mr. Martin (former CKIA Airport Manager who recently retired after 35 years’ service at the CIAA) and to one day walk in his shoes.” Joshua looks forward to working with the CKIA team and doing the best for the Brac people and for the CIAA overall, he added.

The two-staged interview and recruitment process for the CKIA Airport Manager position was a very difficult decision to make as all the candidates were internal candidates and Cayman Brackers, who are very talented young people with a lot of experience and passion for the role and Cayman Brac as a whole. The CIAA is fortunate to have such accomplished employees to choose from, and this bodes well for the future.

“We are thrilled to welcome Joshua as the new CKIA Airport Manager. Joshua is a very mature and capable young man who we are excited about to bring a different perspective to the leadership at CKIA and contribute significantly as part of the management team at the CIAA,” said CIAA CEO Albert Anderson. “His expertise and leadership will undoubtedly propel us to new heights, and I look forward to working with Joshua to continue the development of all aspects of CKIA.”
