PRLog - Nov. 3, 2011 - GRACE BAY, Turks & Caicos Islands -- In the first half of 2011, an influx of U.S. tourists caused arrivals at Providenciales International Airport (PLS) to increase by 23% compared to 2010. New Continental flights from New Jersey and new JetBlue flights from New York and Boston accounted for two-thirds of those visits, and a new weekly service from Halifax will give plenty of Canadian tourists the opportunity to fly to directly to Providenciales.

Outbound Air Canada flights will depart from Halifax, NS (YHZ) on Thursdays at 1:45pm and will arrive in Providenciales at 5:30pm. The new extended runway at PLS will welcome many larger, long-haul flights from Canada and Europe.
The inaugural Air Canada flight from Halifax is scheduled to depart on February 16, 2012.
Canadian visitors accounted for 12 percent of all arrivals in the first six months of 2011, and now that people living in Nova Scotia have direct access to the soft, white beaches of Grace Bay Beach, those numbers are bound to go up.
“We love our Canadian guests,” said Terria Misick, General Manager for The Tuscany on Grace Bay, a boutique resort with 30 units. “They often come for longer holidays than visitors from the U.S., so we have more time to get to know them. And believe it or not, one of the best things about the hospitality business is when guests become friends.”
Anyone interested in Grace Bay Beach or booking a stay at the Tuscany in February or March should call 1-888-997-7686 as soon as possible.
