Airline services between Trinidad and Tobago.
Caribbean Airlines provides inter-island transfers between Trinidad (Piarco International Airport, Port of Spain) and Tobago (Crown Point Airport). Tickets for the 25-minute flight cost TT$300 (US$50) per person return, or TT$150 (US$25) one-way. Children under 12 years of age enjoy a 50% discount.
Flights are frequent (approx 1 every hr) from 6:00AM to 10:20PM and duration is 25 minutes. Check-in time for these flights is one and a half hours before the flight. This seems excessive for an internal flight, but who are we to argue? If you haven't checked in within 20 minutes of your flight, you are highly likely to lose your seat to a standby passenger.
Visitors travelling to Tobago via Trinidad and arriving on international flights after 7:00pm stand little or no chance of being able to catch a flight over to Tobago that day. Attempts to do so are likely to be both unsuccessful as well as being highly stressful. We strongly recommend such visitors to overnight in Trinidad and make a more leisurely transfer to Tobago the following morning. Information on overnight accommodation in Trinidad is available here.
