Turks & Caicos Island Transportations
 
 
 

General

Providenciales International Airport is the main entry point for the Turks & Caicos Islands. Altogether (as of 2010), there are eight airports, located on each of the inhabited islands. Seven have paved runways (three of which are approximately 2000 m long and one is approximately 1000 m), and the remaining one has unpaved runways.

As of 2011, the airport is currently undergoing expansion of the runway that will soon allow larger aircraft, namely 777's, 747's A330's, A340's and 787's to land. Currently the runway is unable to accommodate larger wide-body aircraft. When complete, it is expected that additional airlift to European, Asian and North American destinations could open up.

The islands have 121 km of highway; 24 km paved and 97 km unpaved.

The territory's main international ports and harbours are on Grand Turk and Providenciales.

The islands have no significant railways. In the early 1900s East Caicos operated a horse-drawn railway to transport Sisal from the plantation to the port. The 14 km route was removed after sisal trading ceased.
