Airfare to Turks & Caicos
With resort business really picking up in the last decade, it can be fairly easy to get discount airfare into Turks & Caicos Islands. The main entry point is the Providenciales International Airport (code: PLS), but there is another international airport – JAGS McCartney International Airport on Grand Turk Island – as well, but it mostly has inter-island traffic, although some flights from Florida as well.
Which airlines have flights to Turks & Caicos?
American Airlines has non-stops from Boston and JFK during season. Continental now has non-stop service from Newark. USAir, West Jet and Jet Blue also have flights there.
Saving money on your flight to Turks & Caicos
The peak season for the entire region is the weeks around Christmas and New Years, and with the heavy resort presence here that can be even more dramatic than elsewhere. Booking well in advance is your best bet, but coming in early December or April can save money on your airfare if you are flexible. Flying on Tuesday or Wednesday usually has the lowest airfares if you are planning a trip on short notice. The weekend flights sell out first.
