Edward Bodden Airfield (IATA: LYB, ICAO: MWCL), also known as Little Cayman Airport, is an airfield on the southwest side of Little Cayman, one of the Cayman Islands.

The runway parallels the south shoreline, and approach and departures are over the water. Runway length includes a 180 metres (590 ft) displaced threshold on Runway 28.

The Cayman Brac non-directional beacon is located 13.2 nautical miles (24.4 km) east of the airport, on Cayman Brac island.[4]

Little Cayman Airport's other main building, a 75-foot free span airplane hangar located directly across the field from Bodden Terminal, was built in 1970 by Ryan Construction of Cayman Brac for Dolphin Limited under the direction of General Manager Richard Bennett.
