While the Authority manages and operates Trinidad and Tobago’s two international airports, it functions within a highly regulated environment. Trinidad and Tobago is a signatory to the Convention on International Civil Aviation. This is also known as the Chicago Convention. The Convention establishes rules of airspace, aircraft registration and safety, security, and sustainability, and details the rights of the signatories in relation to air travel. The convention also established the International Civil Aviation Organization.
The Trinidad and Tobago Civil Aviation Authority (TTCAA) plays a critical role as the Regulator monitoring and periodically conducting audits of the Authority’s compliance with ICAO’s standards and regulated practices.
