Main Ports and Airports in Trinidad and Tobago
While there are over 10 active seaports in Trinidad and Tobago, only the following three handle the bulk of the country’s imports and exports:
- Port of Spain
- Port of Scarborough
- Port of Point Lisas
The Port of Spain is the main seaport, operating off Trinidad Island. The Point Lisas port is also located on Trinidad, while the Scarborough port is on Tobago Island.
Being such a small, archipelagic state, Trinidad and Tobago doesn’t have many international airports servicing cargo transportation in and out of the country. The two that do are:
- Piarco International Airport (Trinidad)
- Arthur Napoleon Raymond Robinson International Airport (Tobago)
