Critical reviews of the TCIAA Airport Master plan and the capacity of the major airports, in TCI, are underway. TCIG will decide over the next 90 days on the development and design concepts, the ownership and operational structure appropriate to the needs of the TCI as well as affordability. We must ensure that space and facilities are adequate for domestic and international travel and can meet the demands of TCI’s vital tourism industry.


Discussions continue regarding the redevelopment of the North Caicos Airport.


TCIG is planning several development projects valued at over $130m over time.
