Piarco Intl. Airport Announces Runway Works In March


The Airports Authority of Trinidad and Tobago (AATT) has announced upcoming runway rehabilitation works set to take place at the Piarco International Airport (POS) in Trinidad during the month of March.

In a statement, the AATT said that runway 10/28 will be closed from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. on a nightly basis for the month of March 2024 for required runway works. As Piarco only has one runway, this means that some flights will be affected. Customers flying into or out of the airport during this period should check with their respective airlines for updated departing and landing times.

Travellers are advised to liaise with their respective airlines to confirm flight schedules and travel information for March 2024.

The Authority apologises for any inconvenience caused, but this is a necessary part of our airfield rehabilitation and maintenance programme, as we make consistent efforts to ensure the safety and security of all of our valued customers and stakeholders.

Only a handful of flights are set to be affected. Here are the adjusted times for March 2024:
