No more Time Change for Turks & Caicos

Providenciales, 06 Mar 2015 – No more time change after this weekend! The country will adjust clocks with the upcoming daylight savings time over the weekend; setting clocks forward by one hour on Sunday March 8, 2015 at 2AM. The government dubbing the season, “more sunshine for the Turks and Caicos” as a Cabinet decision, last year, determined the country would discontinue altering time based on the two seasons where time would either ‘spring forward’ or ‘fall back’. Hon Donhue Gardiner said: “This move will provide our visitor and residents with an extra hour of sunshine during our winter months, our peak tourist season.” He also cites it as good for commerce: “This will be good news for our resorts, bars and restaurants, as well as allowing our residents to enjoy a little more sunshine at the end of their day.” The move was delayed when commercial airliners said they needed more notice to adjust their flight schedules. Again, when you set your clocks forward on Sunday, it will be for final time – no more time change in the Turks and Caicos.
