    This is a tiny airport and about what you would expect on a small island like Turks. It doesn’t have AC so it’s very hot. You have to get to the airport 3 hours early for any international flights so it gets hot sitting around for a couple hours. Go upstairs and grab yourself a beer and try to sit outside so at least you can get some breeze. It’s very hard to find seats and you’ll have to stake out and try to grab one when someone is leaving. Overall about half the people here are friendly and half are borderline rude. It would be nice if this at least had AC or fans inside. There are two large evaporative coolers downstairs that you can stand in front of as well to try and cool off.

    Busy airport. Check-in and security lines are outside in a covered area, so bring a bottle of water and be prepared to sweat. Lines tend to be long. Be prepared for a total of 1 - 1.5 hours to get through check in and security lines. Past security, the waiting area is air conditioned. The upstairs waiting area tends to be less crowded and cooler than downstairs.

    Way too many people here on a Saturday. TCI makes visitors jump thru hoops to get here. We had to buy insurance to satisfy the TCI Assured scheme. Then they pack us in this tiny airport like sardines when leaving. It’s hot and crowded, people sitting on the floor. I love Turks and Caicos, this is my third trip but I won’t return until they enlarge the departure lounge. It is a miserable last (and lasting) impression.

    We got through security just fine. If you're going to check bags you're going to want to be 3 hours ahead of time. Just to be safe. They could use an upgrade on their food and beverage services. Their food was pretty bad there.

    “First impression is the best impression”. Turks and Caicos is very small island. Its main source of revenue is tourism and 90% of its tourist are from USA. US tourists would expect a better airport consider from where they are traveling from. I would expect management doing lot of improvements of the airport as tourism is the main source of income. Also, problems get worse as most of the airline flights are on similar time which makes it more crowded.

    I love this beautiful island. I just returned from my sixth visit.
    However, I do not plan to return until something is done to improve the airport experience. It has gotten progressively worse each time I visit.
    Unfortunately, after a wonderful trip the airport experience leaves one with a negative view of the island. I heard many visitors say they will never return.
    I urge those whose business is tourism to make their voices heard. Your clients pay high taxes to visit you and deserve better.
