Skycruise Airways has gotten one step closer to providing local and international flights in the Turks and Caicos Islands.
The Air Transport Licensing Authority has granted the airline a provisional license, but Skycruise can’t begin service until it meets all regulatory requirements and gets an Air Operators Certificate from the Civil Aviation Authority.
Skycruise wants to provide daily interisland service to Grand Turk, Providenciales, North Caicos and South Caicos, and service three times a week to Salt Cay. International service would be to Ft. Lauderdale, Haiti, Dominican Republic, Jamaica, Bahamas and Antigua.
Both local airlines — Air Turks and Caicos and Caicos Express Airways — objected to Skycruise’s proposal, saying the country is too small for a third local carrier.
