We're like proud parents watching you actualize your vision. Maybe it's just a vacation, just the Caribbean, just a week... but deep down, you and I both know it's more than that. It's the choice to connect with vibrancy and a richness of life, even for a moment. After all, as visitors to the Turks and Caicos all seem to agree upon, it's about being in the present moment. The islands here remind us of that. And we return to our cities and our "real lives" with a vigor, a rediscovered purpose for our present moments.

But how does one go from the visualization to the action? Well, as you know, the issue of how one goes from a thought to a deed is a vital component to success. It's the difference between being a dreamer and a doer. It's the difference between those who wait for something to happen and those who go out and get it done. If you've made the decision to travel to Turks and Caicos, we'll assume you're in the latter category of those who take action. So we're here to help you take the action in the most efficient and effective way. We're here to help you reach your destination.
Turks and Caicos is a remote Caribbean island, undiscovered until relatively late in the game; but its ease of access positions it as one of the greatest getaways to North Americans. The past couple years have seen an increase in the number of direct flights into Provo Airport, the international gateway on the main Turks and Caicos island of Providenciales. Getting to and from the Islands has never been easier or faster, with direct flights available from major cities like New York, Boston, Montreal, Miami, Charlotte, and Toronto. These east coast hubs will reach TCI in under four hours and with most of the major Turks and Caicos resorts less than twenty minutes from the airport, you'll be sipping a margarita on Grace Bay Beach in no time.

Provo Airport has recently seen a huge boom in the tourism market as visitors have more than doubled over the past five years. Most vistors to the islands are Canadians, with the busiest months for travel being March, April, and July.
The private aviation sector has also significantly increased. Most of the people arriving on private jets are heading directly to the ultra-luxurious resorts of Parrot Cay (on its own private island) and Amanyara. Although enhancements to other luxury five star resorts have seen an influx of vistors to upscale properties on Grace Bay Beach, such as The Regent Palms and Grace Bay Club. The trend of more Learjets and the like flying into Provo Airport is predicted to grow as more people learn about the unparalleled magnificence of Turks and Caicos. Provo Airport is upgrading their facilities to focus on attracting more high-spending elite travellers.
