Vacation Express, which offers exclusive nonstop flights and vacation packages, will be offering flights from Detroit, Chicago, Pittsburgh, Newark, Baltimore, Cincinnati and Dallas to Grand Bahama this summer.
“Today is a very good day for Grand Bahama,” said Bahamas Minister of State James Kwasi Thompson. “
“A few months ago the government was in negotiation with Sunwing Airlines and we negotiated the return of the very important Vacation Express, which brings additional airlift to Grand Bahama,” he said.
“So today really marks the return of Vacation Express – we have seen a plane that came from Nashville that brought 150 passengers, and those 150 passengers will stay for four nights here in Grand Bahama,” he said.
Each flight will operate on a four-night rotation, departing various days of the week with early departures and late returns for an optimal vacation experience.
“We are very happy to see the return of Vacation Express,” said the minister. “It is very important to Grand Bahama. One of the things that the government has been working diligently on is providing additional airlift to Grand Bahama, so today we have seen the fruits of that work.”
