The VIP Flyers Club, the premium lounge at the Turks and Caicos Islands’ Providenciales International Airport, has reopened for business.
Now able to accommodate 50 passengers, the airside sanctuary boasts new furnishings and private restrooms. For a walk-in fee of $50, departing guests enjoy complimentary WI-FI, international phone calls, snacks and drinks; loaner computers; and satellite TV.
Arriving visitors may take advantage of the VIP Flyers Club’ Fast Track service, which includes escorted expediting through Immigration and Customs as well as curbside greeting and express service through outbound Security to the lounge when they depart. Fast Track service costs $200 each way for the first person, plus $75 per additional passenger.
“Guests visiting the lounge, whether by fast track or walk-in, will find a more comfortable ambiance before boarding their flights,” said Caesar Campbell of Olympia Destination Management Company, which operates the lounge.
Providenciales International Airport serves approximately half a million passengers a year and recently completed a $50 million expansion and renovation project. “The revamped VIPFC complements the overall aerodrome expansion program,” Campbell said.
