Delta Air Lines is expanding its flight service to Nassau in The Bahamas for the upcoming winter season, Caribbean Journal has learned.
Beginning Dec. 21, Delta will be expanding its service from Boston Logan Airport to Nassau’s Lynden Pindling International Airport with new daily nonstop flights for the peak season.
That will mean taking existing Saturday-only service from Boston to Nassau and expanding it to daily nonstop service, with the expanded flights set to run through April 30, 2020, according to the company.
The move is part of a wider Caribbean expansion for Delta over the next year.
“We are thrilled that Delta is expanding its current once-weekly service to daily, non-stop service from Boston to Nassau,” said Joy Jibrilu, Director General of the Bahamas’ Ministry of Tourism and Aviation, in a statement. “This is a testament to the great synergy between our two cities and the convenience of this flight — Bostonians can fly away to paradise in around four hours — and we are so excited to welcome Boston-area travelers seven days a week to experience the beauty, culture and spirit of The Bahamas.”
