Trinidad Airport & Customs

by dbeatty Online Now Jan 26, 2007 at 10:17 AM

My husband and I are considering a flight connection in Trinidad. We would be arriving from the USofA. I'm wondering how much time we should expect to spend upon arrival, going through customs and obtaining our luggage. How large is the airport? If we only have one hour between our connecting flight, would we make it? Thanks in advance.

    The airport is small and has about 8-10 custom booths, half will be reserved for "locals" and other Caribbean passport holders. Luggage handling are all manual, though 99% of the time they do not check your luggages at custom. Not sure if there is a transit route where you can bypass custom. one hour is tight if your plane does make it on time, not very often with flights out of the US.
