History

Providenciales’ relatively new airport was opened in the eighties when the Island saw a huge surge of development. In June 2010 expansion plans for a longer runway and better terminal facilities started, increasing the runway by 500 meters to a total length of 2,804m.

This new extended runway will enable corporate airliners such as the Airbus ACJ and Boeing BBJ to operate fully loaded, performing flights directly from the Caribbean to Europe, America, Africa and the Middle East. Aircraft such as the Global Express and Gulfstream G550 are currently the best options for long range flights of 10 hours and over.
