Sunwing’s New Bahamas Flight


Travel giant Sunwing has officially made its newest flight to Grand Bahama.

The new flight from Houston, Texas arrived with 189 visitors last week.

It was welcomed by a delegation including Bahamas Tourism Minister Obie Wilchcombe and Minister for Grand Bahama Dr Michael Darville.

Tourism officials said they anticipated that the new route would bring tourists to the island from as many as eight US cities.

Texas is apparently a growing market for Bahamian tourism, officials said.
