Turks and Caicos Reservations Welcomes Increased Air Service From Canada With Free Rum Cakes for Every Booking and Savings of Up to 40% at Selected Hotels

PROVIDENCIALES, TURKS and CAICOS ISLANDS--(Marketwire - Aug 29, 2011) - Turks and Caicos Reservations, the Turks and Caicos Islands' only locally-based reservation service, today launched a special promotion to commemorate new air service being offered by Air Canada to Turks and Caicos. Air Canada will begin direct, non-stop service from Halifax, Nova Scotia to Providenciales, Turks and Caicos, on Feb. 16, 2012 through April 26, 2012. To celebrate the additional airlift, Turks and Caicos Reservations is giving away Bambarra rum cakes to every person who books hotels and villas in the Turks and Caicos Islands through its service. In addition, the company offers a range of special deals and promotions of up to 40% off at premier resorts throughout the islands.

The new Air Canada flights leave Halifax on Thursdays at 1:45 pm and land in Providenciales at 5:30 pm -- enabling passengers to arrive just in time for sunset cocktails and dinner on the beach. To add to the temptation, Turks and Caicos Reservations is giving away a delicious Bambarra rum cake for every reservation made through its service from September 1 through December 31, 2011. This special promotion is on top of the already low rates being offered through the service.

"Turks and Caicos Reservations is all about making our little piece of paradise more accessible to more people, so we welcome this news as it now makes it even easier for our Canadian friends to come visit," said Val Kalliecharan, general manager and one of the founders of Turks and Caicos Reservations. "Having lived in Halifax, Nova Scotia for almost a decade, I appreciate this new flight even more. There are now a total of eight direct flights from Canada each week during the high season -- just when temperatures start to dip -- so we expect this news to make many people very happy this winter."

Air Canada customers can fly directly to Turks and Caicos from Toronto, Montreal, Ottawa and now Halifax. For specific details see:
