Piarco Airport has been around for more than 90 years. The first Piarco arrivals arrived in 1931. Many flights then went to Venezuela. During World War II, the airfield was used by the US Army Air Forces, US Navy, and the Royal Navy Observer School. Submarine patrol flights were carried out from here and for transport. A major leap forward brings us to a completely new terminal that was completed in 2001. This is the current Terminal North. The old terminal has become Terminal South. A decade later, after a study, it was decided to change the infrastructure. A business park was completed in 2013.
Piarco Airport terminal
Piarca arrivals are at two different terminals, North and South terminal. The south terminal was used in the past to handle commercial flights. Since North Terminal has sufficient capacity on average 3 million passengers per year, North Terminal was given a different function. It was used as an executive terminal after renovation. These are therefore no ordinary passenger flights, but for helicopter, cargo, and training flights. The North Terminal has space for 29 aircraft.
There is 1 runway of 10,500 feet / 3,200 meters long for all POS airport arrivals.
