Piarco International Airport Transfers
Trinidad and Tobago’s Piarco International Airport (POS) provides several modes of transportation for its customers.
Services to/from POS, including rental cars, taxis, shuttles, and buses are available in front of the airport terminal building.
The airport is a strategic partner of the city of Port-of-Spain, the nation's capital, and located 27 kilometers away.
The quickest way to get downtown is by taxi for less than US$ 50.00. This airport is served by multiple major international airlines with daily service to and from destinations all over the world.
Amenities include ample dining choices, duty-free and souvenir shopping, and facilities like restrooms, ATMs, and many more.
The Trinidad and Tobago dollar is indicated by a $ sign or TT$ to distinguish it from other dollar currencies.
Because the US dollar is widely accepted in the country, you can use it when visiting certain places. Generally, you can usually get by with US$ at the resorts and hotels.
But when going outside of the tourist centers, you'll want to take TT$ with you. As of this update, conversion stands at 1.00 US$ = 6.79 TT$.
Piarco International Airport has two terminals. The south terminal was once the passenger terminal for the airport but has been renovated to serve as an executive terminal.
The North terminal is the main passenger terminal. It handles all the commercial passenger airline traffic. The north terminal has twenty-nine parking positions.
It has fourteen parking positions as well as light aircraft parking.
