Flight Operations Resume at Providenciales Airport Following the Passage of Tropical Storm Cristobal

PROVIDENCIALES, Turks & Caicos Islands, Tuesday, August 26th, 2014 – Flight operations at Providenciales Airport resume normal operations following the passage of tropical storm Cristobal. The storm’s passage though the Turks and Caicos Islands left a trail of cancelled flights due to its impact on the islands.

Flight operations at Providenciales International Airport were suspended since Sunday due to heavy rain, strong winds, low visibility and cloud ceiling. These prevented safe operations into the country’s main port of entry.

Commenting on the suspended flight operation, Airport Authority’s CEO John Smith said “we remain committed to public safety and are happy to resume flight operations now that conditions are favorable to fly.”

The board and management of the Airports Authority apologize for any inconvenience caused and wish to thank the public for their patience and cooperation during one of nature’s most ferocious events.
