Scheduled service airlines are
Airlines and schedules tend to change frequently. Most visitors to Grand Turk arrive with American Airlines to Provo and then shuttle over on a small aircraft, this works quite smoothly. Bahamasair began flying from Miami twice a week in 1999 but there was little confidence locally that it would last long. Alternatively, Lynx Air flies direct from Ft Lauderdale, comfortable, many advantages but lengthy flight. TCA, Sky King and Inter Island Airways operate frequent inter-island flights and it is often possible to turn up on the day you want to travel and catch the next flight. Reservations are recommended, however, particularly when going to Provo.
Airport Information: It is worth checking in early when returning to Miami from Provo, to avoid long queues.
