The Cove, Eleuthera hotel property in the Bahamas is launching charter air service for travelers from Florida.
The property says it has booked 30 flights for the next two months from Fort Lauderdale Executive Airport to North Eleuthera Airport on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.
“By relying on an expanded fleet of planes we achieve a passenger volume that makes these direct flights affordable,” said Sidney Torres, owner of the property, in a statement. “The Cove, Express eliminates the delays and hassles of layovers. Once our guests arrive in Ft. Lauderdale or Miami, we can make arrangements to book them on a short 45 minute flight to our resort.”
Trend Aviation is partnering with the hotel on the service, which could expand to a fourth weekly flight in the coming weeks, according to the company.
The flights will be operated on nine-seat Cessna Caravans.
