Trinidad Piarco International Airport (POS)
(Trinidad, West Indies)
Located 27 km / 17 miles from Port of Spain, the capital city of both Trinidad and Tobago, Piarco International Airport (POS) is a small, but modern facility which reopened following a complete renovation as recently as 2001. Trinidad Piarco Airport features relatively low annual passenger figures in comparison to large international airports, but is still a busy hub, facilitating air travel into and out of the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago.
Close to Caroni, Centento, Kelly Village, St. Helena and the Chin Chin Savanna Village, Piarco International Airport enjoys excellent views of the mountainous landscape and neighbouring Savannah, and features an impressive atrium area, complete with enormous glass dome. Featuring one terminal (the North Terminal) with three main concourse areas, the national Caribbean Airlines are based here and provide the largest selection of destinations, which range from Kingston in Jamaica, to Georgetown in the Bahamas.
Taxis operated by the Airport Taxi Driver's Co-operative provide the main link between the airport and Port of Spain, as well as other Trinidad destinations. These include Fullarton, Point Fortin, San Fernando, Saparia and Toco.
