On Friday (August 26, 2022), Cayman Airways announced the reopening of their Sir Turtle Club Lounge at Owen Roberts International Airport on Grand Cayman. The lounge was reopened last Tuesday (August 23rd) after being closed for over five years for major airport renovations, with further delays caused by the global COVID-19 pandemic. The ribbon cutting ceremony was attended by the Hon. Kenneth Bryan, Minister for Tourism and Transport, Cayman Airways President and CEO, Mr. Fabian Whorms and Kozaily Designs’ Owner, Ms. Alpha Kozaily, along with other VIPs and dignitaries.

In Friday’s announcement, Cayman Islands’ Minister for Tourism and Transport, Hon. Kenneth Bryan, said,

“The new and improved Sir Turtle Club Lounge adds value to the Cayman Airways product on a whole, while offering up the possibility for a few more jobs for our people. I'm excited to share this moment with the various organisations who were involved in getting this project off the ground, including the Cayman Islands Airports Authority, the Kozaily Design team who are responsible for this fresh new look, and our very own Cayman Airways employees who stepped up to the plate to take on the challenging task of coordinating it all. I have no doubt that our Sir Turtle Club members and Business Class passengers will be very satisfied with the enhancement to our services, and I am sure they will all enjoy this comfortable space while waiting for their flights.”


Also commenting on the reopening of the Sir Turtle Club lounge, Cayman Airways’ President and CEO, Mr. Fabian Whorms, said,


“Access to this beautiful lounge is one component that will be accessible not just to passengers who purchase Business Class tickets, but also for qualifying members of both loyalty programmes. There are also other value adding offerings being reviewed at this time, such as priority check-in and boarding, baggage fee waivers and upgrades. We want to deliver the maximum value and exclusivity that we can to our loyal customers, and we are looking to build a new generation of customers who see even more value than has been traditionally offered, when choosing the national airline.”


The design and construction of the new lounge was accomplished by local Cayman company Kozaily Designs. The company’s Owner, Ms. Alpha Kozaily explained that the vision of the design was to showcase Cayman’s heritage and natural beauty, from the geometric shape of decorative wall tiles, an homage to Cayman’s turtling heritage, to textured beige floor tiles reflecting the white sand beaches, and sea blue hues on the custom furniture and light fixtures, reflecting Cayman’s crystal clear waters. The lounge also features carefully curated images of Cayman landscapes and seascapes on the walls, providing guests with a relaxing Caymanian-themed environment as they await their flights. The lounge is open to Cayman Airways’ Business Class guests and Sir Turtle Club members, as well as Sir Turtle rewards Platinum and Gold Members.
