Although the constant growth in the passenger figures for the airport was interrupted by a dip of 0.4% this January, a decline of 2.6% in April represents a more significant decline. However, 30,027 people still flew into Cayman last month which, 2011 aside, is the best April since 2004. Cruise arrivals also experienced a slight fall last month following an optimistic start to 2012 for the cruise tourism sector. April saw 145,798 passengers visit Grand Cayman this year compared to 146,829 last hear, which is the lowest arrival numbers for the month since 2002. Read more on CNS business
