The TCICAA collects a large amount of data on the aviation industry. It publishes much of this, such as punctuality data, airline charges and ATOL licence holders to help consumers make an informed decision on air travel. Information is also recorded on other areas - such as the profile of passengers, the level of air traffic at airports and the most popular destinations served by Turks and Caicos Islands airports. This data has been collected for many years and allows observers to build an historical picture of the Turks and Caicos Islands aviation industry. In its role as a safety regulator the TCICAA records significant levels of safety data from the Turks and Caicos Islands industry - ranging from aircraft accident and incident data to air proximity reports and long- term worldwide safety trends.
