Georgia : DELTA AIR explores its services to Turks and Caicos.

As Delta Air lines declared about its contrivings to increase its services to the Providenciales International Airport (PLS) from Boston, the Turks and Caicos Islands is set to become more accessible and low-priced too.

We continue to see a growing demand in Boston and increased flights next year will give our customers more direct service at more convenient times, Bob Cortelyou, Delta s SVP to Network Planning, says in a press statement. Boston is a key domestic city in our network, and we are committed to providing service that continues to keep us the preferred airline of our customers. With a $10 million expansion to the Providenciales International Airport terminal building now well underway and on target to be completed in late 2014, Delta s announcement comes as much welcomed news for tourism stakeholders, as it signifies market growth.

While many airlines are decreasing services, we are pleased that Delta acknowledges Turks and Caicos as the foremost destination in the Caribbean, said Ralph Higgs, Director of Tourism. The additional airlift from Boston will undoubtedly make the Turks and Caicos more attractive to potential vacationers traveling from the eastern seaboard of the United States or connecting through these gateways; a sign of great things for the future of our tourism market.

At present, Delta functions everyday non-stop service from Atlanta to Providenciales and its new Boston service will be providing customers the option of First Class, Economy Comfort or Economy seating, along with in-flight Wi-Fi.

Premier of the Turks and Caicos Islands and Minister of Tourism, Hon. Dr. Rufus Ewing commented, The addition of the new flights from these major gateways further underscores the appeal of our islands to the traveling public and the confidence our airline partners have in us as a destination. I wish Team Turks and Caicos, including the Turks and Caicos Tourist Board, the Turks and Caicos Airports Authority, the Turks and Caicos Hotel and Tourism Association, along with Delta Air Lines every success in this new endeavor.
