Work on Providenciales Airport runway resurfacing and extension project began in July last year, and will soon be completed. Prior to the start of the project, commitments were secured from WestJet, Continental and Jet Blue, and all three airlines have commenced flights to the Turks and Caicos Islands since the project began. The Turks and Caicos Islands Airports Authority has also been in discussion with a number of other airlines that are awaiting the extension either to introduce flights, new aircraft types or to extend their operations.
