(CNS): The Cayman Airways flight 102 was cooled down from the excitement of the airline’s birthday celebrations when it arrived at Miami International Airport on Friday morning, 7 August. The water cannon salute was in honour of the national flag carrier’s 41st year in business. Applauding the salute from the gate were representatives from the Cayman Islands Department of Tourism (DoT): Manny Gonzalez, Regional Manager; and Ana Pichs, Regional Administrator.

Officials from the Miami-Dade County Airport Authority, the Miami Protocol Office, and Transport Security Administration (TSA) also joined in the celebrations. “From the ticket counter to the gate, guests on every flight bound for Cayman were greeted with a festive atmosphere of true Caymanian hospitality, including Caribbean music by Patrick Holgate and many refreshments,” said Cayman Airways’ Miami Station Manager Dave Gibson, noting that the Department of Tourism sponsored and assisted with the day’s festivities. “It was a great day for our staff and our guests.”

Gibson said the DoT team also travelled to Tampa to participate and assist with the festivities there the following day, wherethe Hillsboro County Airport Authority also attended.
