United Airlines will be offering nonstop flights from Chicago to Providenciales from December 19, 2015 through April 30, 2016.

The new service will operate on Saturdays over the course of the winter travel season.

“We are extremely excited to partner with United Airlines on its first ever nonstop service out of Chicago to Providenciales. The direct route will provide easy access for our visitors, add further convenience, and offer excellent connections to feeder cities in the Midwestern United States,” said Ralph Higgs, the Turks and Caicos Islands’ Director of Tourism. “We anticipate welcoming the new and returning visitors this new service will bring to Providenciales and look forward to a mutually beneficial relationship with United Airlines.”

The outbound Boeing 737-800 flight will depart from Chicago Saturdays at 10:40 a.m., arriving in Providenciales at 3:40 p.m., while the return flight will depart Providenciales at 1:49 p.m. and arrive in Chicago at 5:09 p.m.

“Providenciales is among the fastest-growing Caribbean destinations, with 16 percent industry demand growth year-over-year, and our service here addresses seasonal variation in demand from different hubs,” said Noel Smith, United’s National Account and Leisure Sales Manager.

Bookings for the new service became available on June 13.
