About Air Turks & Caicos
Air Turks & Caicos began in 1991 as InterIsland Airways Charter Service. In 2003, the Turks and Caicos Government started a push toward regional and international development; the time had come for the Turks and Caicos to have its own airline. A scheduled license was applied for and granted, and thus began an ambitious expansion project that involved adding international destinations and acquiring larger and faster aircraft. In addition to its domestic routes, Air Turks & Caicos serves several key international destinations, with daily scheduled flights to multiple cities in Haiti, the Dominican Republic, Jamaica and the Bahamas.
