Piarco International Airport has been declared the Best Airport in the Caribbean by the Skytrax World Airport Awards 2022.

In a press release, the Airports Authority of Trinidad and Tobago said the airport was also named third best in the global region (Central America and the Caribbean), only being beaten by Panama’s Tocumen International Airport and Costa Rica’s San Jose International Airport.

General manager of the authority Hayden Newton said “These accomplishments are as a result of the perseverance and resilience of our employees, who continue to work diligently, despite prevailing challenges, to ensure that we consistently achieve high standards of safety and security while demonstrating operational efficiency and service excellence.”

The authority said it intended to continue leading the region by “maintaining the highest standards of operational efficiency and customer service at both the Piarco and ANR Robinson International

Airports, and making valuable contributions that would enhance the attractiveness of destination TT.”

This is the second consecutive year that Piarco Airport has claimed this honour.
