Middle Caicos Airport (MDS) is a small, surfaced, 2461-foot (750 m) airstrip, with a single terminal airport building. It’s located in the center of Middle Caicos near the village of Conch Bar.
The airport is currently closed and has no scheduled flights or emergency services. Due to the construction of the North and Middle Caicos causeway, charter and private flights to the two islands use the North Caicos Airport (NCA) instead.
In the past, scheduled domestic flights were offered to both North Caicos and Middle Caicos, however, the introduction of a passenger ferry service from Providenciales and the construction of the causeway reduced flight demand to the extent that it was no longer feasible for local airlines to operate scheduled flight routes to the two islands.
There are no operating emergency services at the Middle Caicos airport.
