Delta expanding Turks and Caicos service from East Coast

turks and caicos

Delta Airlines will expand its services from Boston and New York Kennedy to Turks and Caicos with the launch of year-round Saturday flights from both cities on March 8, 2014. The new Turks and Caicos flights will be on Airbus A320 aircraft.

Seating between 180 and 200 people, the A320 flies a little faster and features great amenities in economy class including personal entertainment consoles and better lighting.

Delta currently already operates a daily nonstop flight from Atlanta to Providenciales.

According to the airline, Delta is New York City’s largest and fastest growing carrier, and Delta has acknowledged the Turks and Caicos as “the foremost destination in the Caribbean,” so it looks like the expanded service will remain in place for some time.

Providenciales Airport itself launched an expansion project in early 2013 that should be completed in time for the start of the 2014 winter high season.

In other news, Air Turks & Caicos, the national airline of Turks & Caicos Islands has changed its name to InterCaribbean Airways.
