Airports & Airlines
A number of international airlines fly to Trinidad and Tobago. Caribbean Airlines (the national carrier) and LIAT are particularly useful for flights from other Caribbean countries.
Caribbean Airlines flies from Trinidad to Antigua, Barbados, Grenada, Kingston and Montego Bay in Jamaica, Nassau, St Lucia and Sint Maarten.
LIAT flies from Trinidad to Antigua, Barbados, Curaçao, Grenada, Guyana, St Lucia and St Vincent.
Departure tax is included in the price of airline tickets.
In Trinidad ships dock at the King’s Wharf, on ugly Wrightson Rd in Port of Spain, from where you can walk onto Independence Sq and the downtown area. In Tobago, the cruise-ship terminal is adjacent to the ferry terminal in downtown Scarborough.
Out of the hurricane path, Trinidad and Tobago is a safe haven for yachties. Chaguaramas in Trinidad has the primary mooring and marina facilities as well as an immigration and customs office for yachties. Tobago is an upwind jaunt, but sometimes yachts moor at Charlottesville or Scarborough. For more information, contact the Yacht Services Association of Trinidad and Tobago.
