One thousand more air seats per week for Turks and Caicos Islands

An increase in airlift of
nearly 25% to the acclaimed Turks and Caicos Islands for the autumn/
Winter season will mean an additional 1000 air seats per week for one of
the fastest growing destinations in the Caribbean. President of the
Turks and Caicos Hotel and Tourism Association (TCHTA) Gary Greenwood
has described the increase in air service and air seats as
“unprecedented and great news for our tourism industry and our
visitors.“TCHTA Member and Manager of the newly opened Le Vele Resort on Grace
Bay, Beverly Williams has joined many established and new elegant
resorts in welcoming the news, she explains “the additional scheduled
service is an important signifier for our destination, particularly in
view of the availability of additional hotel rooms for the upcoming
season . We have seen increases in air seat numbers from 50% to over
200% from American Airlines, US Airways, Delta Airlines and British
Airways. Demand has increased from the US, Canada and Europe and
airlines are wisely capitalizing on that demand.”

The Turks and Caicos Islands now offers non-stop scheduled service from
Atlanta, Boston, Charlotte, Fort Lauderdale, Miami, New York,
Philadelphia as well as from Toronto, London, Jamaica and Nassau with
American Airlines, Delta Airlines, US Airways, Air Canada, British
Airways, Air Jamaica and BahamasAir.  After some sensitive development
and fine renovations over the Summer, the destination offers an even
more impressive and luxurious range of elegant hotels, condominium
resorts, all-inclusive properties and private hideaways for visitors
this Fall and Winter season.

Association Director Caesar Campbell comments “With so many different
routes and airlines available, customers can enjoy more choice and
better value for money when they choose to vacation in the Turks and
Caicos Islands. The recently introduced daily air service from Atlanta
with Delta Airlines and from Fort Lauderdale with US Airways alongside
the additional flight from British Airways from London has boosted air
seat numbers to a record high”
