The primary international airport is at Providenciales. There are a number of airports in Turks & Caicos. However, not all Turks & Caicos airports have regularly scheduled flights. In fact, some small airports have no regularly scheduled passenger services.

Some regional airports in Turks & Caicos are only served by small "local" airlines which do not make their fares available to major travel web sites. For flights out of that sort of city, you would need to research which airlines serve the city and locate their web site or phone number by any means you have at your disposal. Such airlines include Interisland Airways, SkyKing, and Turks and Caicos Airways.

The Turks and Caicos Islands (TCI) are a British Overseas Territory consisting of two groups of tropical islands in the Caribbean. The two island groups are in the North Atlantic Ocean, southeast of the Bahamas, north of Hispaniola, and 914 km from Miami. The territory is geographically part of the Bahamas, but is politically a separate entity. The Caicos Islands are separated by the Caicos Passage from the closest Bahaman islands, Mayaguana and Great Inagua.

The islands consist primarily of low, flat limestone with extensive marshes and mangrove swamps and 230 miles of beaches front. The weather is usually sunny and relatively dry, but suffers frequent hurricanes. The islands have limited natural fresh water resources; private cisterns collect rainwater for drinking. The primary natural resources are spiny lobster, conch and other shellfish.

The Caicos Islands are the larger group, with almost 96 percent of the land area and 82 percent of the population. Of the Caicos Islands, Providenciales, North Caicos, South Caicos, and Middle Caicos are inhabited. Pine Cay and Parrot Cay serve as tourist resorts. The Turks Islands are a chain that stretches north-south. Grand Turk has over 98% of the population of the Turks, with the remained on Salt Cay.

Ethnically, the vast majority of inhabitants are black and Protestant Christian. Two-fifths of them are Baptist, one-fifth Methodist, and one-fifth Anglican. The economy of the Turks and Caicos is based on tourism, fishing, and offshore financial services. Most capital goods and food for domestic consumption are imported. Tourists come especially from the United States and Canada. Major sources of government revenue include fees from offshore financial activities and customs receipts. The primary agricultural products include limited amounts of maize, beans, cassava (tapioca) and citrus fruits. Fish, lobster, and conch are the only significant exports.

Proposals have been circulated for years to make Turks & Caicos part of Canada but have worked out. In 2004, the province of Nova Scotia voted to invite Turks and Caicos to join the province, should the islands ever become part of Canada.
