Bahamasair Relaunches Fort Lauderdale-Grand Bahama Flights

By: Caribbean Journal Staff - December 17, 2019

Bahamian national carrier Bahamasair has relaunched commercial services to Grand Bahama. 

The first international commercial flight to Grand Bahama since Hurricane Dorian arrived in Freeport on Monday, Dec. 16.

It was the second international flight to Grand Bahama in three days, following Sunwing’s return to the destination. 

“[The flight] means that we’re getting to back to normal for our residents because the Bahamasair flight is what accommodates our residents moving back and forth to Florida, and so today is really a positive step for residents,” said Kwasi Thompson, The Bahamas’ Minister of State for Grand Bahama. 

Grand Bahama’s airport is currently operating as a temporary facility and has been cleared for all international flights, officials confirmed. 

Another carrier, American Airlines will likely be returning to Grand Bahama in “early 2020,” officials said.
