The Bahamas is open for tourism, and major air carriers have officially returned to the destination.
Southwest Airlines kicked off the return with the resumption of daily flights from Baltimore to Nassau on July 1.
On July 2, New York City-based carrier JetBlue Airways relaunched a pair of routes to The Bahamas, its first service since the beginning of the pandemic.
JetBlue’s Bahamas relaunch included flights from both New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport and from Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport to The Bahamas.
Both routes, which are operating daily, are serving Nassau’s Lynden Pindling International Airport.
It’s part of a broader return of flights service to The Bahamas, with Delta have relaunched its flights from Atlanta to Nassau with twice-daily service and Southwest’s relaunch of flights from Baltimore to Nassau earlier this week.
On July 7, American Airlines resumes twice-daily flights from Miami to Nassau and Charlotte to Nassau; along with service from Miami to both Exuma and Eleuthera.
United Airlines is also returning to The Bahamas: on July 6, the airline will relaunch flights from both Houston and Newark to Nassau, while Denver-Nassau flights will resume on July 11.
Of course, some of most beloved small airlines that serve The Bahamas, including Makers Air and Tropic Ocean Airways, have also relaunched operations.
The Bahamas, which officially reopened for tourism on July 1, is requiring that travelers who arrive after July 7 present proof of a negative COVID-19 test that is no more than seven days old, while presenting an Electronic Health Visa application.
