Owen Roberts International Airport (IATA: GCM, ICAO: MWCR) is located one mile outside George Town on the island of Grand Cayman in the Cayman Islands, British West Indies. One of the largest airports in the Western Caribbean, MWCR is the main international airport for the Cayman Islands, and the main base for Cayman Airways.

The airport suffered considerable damage from Hurricane Ivan in September 2004, costing millions of dollars just to get it functional again. Because of the vital role the airport plays in the local economy (most notably, tourism and food), the Cayman Islands Government approved a plan to expand and update the existing airport.
