JetBlue Airways is expanding its flight service to the Bahamas.

The carrier announced that it would be adding two additional daily flights between Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood and Nassau.

The flights, which will launch Aug. 1, will mean JetBlue will offer a total of five daily nonstop flights from Fort Lauderdale to Nassau.

The flights are part of what the company says is a significant expansion in its Fort Lauderdale hub, with plans for roughly 75 percent growth in Fort Lauderdale in the coming years.


“We are absolutely thrilled to announce the next phase of our growth at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport,” said Marty St. George, executive vice president commercial and planning at JetBlue.

JetBlue operates its Fort Lauderdale-Nassau flights on its Embraer 190 aircraft.

The flight takes less than one hour.

“The Broward County Aviation Department is elated that JetBlue is making such a huge commitment to our community with their proposed increases in service to benefit travelers in and out of FLL”, said Kent George, Director of Aviation at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport.
