Canouan Airport (IATA: CIWICAO: TVSC) is the airport located on the island of Canouan in Saint Vincent and the Grenadines.[1] A land reclamation project and runway extension were completed at the end of March 2008. Overall runway length increased from 3,455 to 5,875 ft (1,053 to 1,791 m). This extension of the runway makes the airport accessible by a larger number of aircraft and can now accommodate aircraft from North and South America. Before the runway extension, the ATR 72 of American Eagle (Executive Airlines) was the largest aircraft to serve the airport. Currently, however, ATR service has been suspended pending runway certification and approval of night operations.

The airport has also just commissioned NDB/DME navigation equipment to complement the runway extension.
