It’s Easier Than Ever to Fly to The Bahamas

The Bahamas has seen the beginnings of a tourism boom since easing its tourism requirements for vaccinated travelers — waiving pre-testing requirements for the fully vaccinated.

And that’s in large part thanks to a wave of airlift now available to the destination, from major hubs across the United States. 

“Travelers have been daydreaming of a vacation in The Bahamas for nearly a year and half, and we’re so thrilled there are so many nonstop and one-stop flight options to make a Bahamian escape a reality,” said Bahamas Tourism Minister Dionisio D’Aguilar.

That includes a multitude of options to Nassau, from flights on American Airlines from cities like Chicago, Charlotte, Washington, DC , Dallas, New York, Miami, Philadelphia and Austin to routes from New York City on carriers like Delta, JetBlue and United.

That’s along with an increasing network of flights to the Out Islands of The Bahamas: American Airlines is now operating flights from Miami and Charlotte all summer long to Grand Bahama, Eleuthera, Exuma and Abaco; American is also operating flights from Chicago to Exuma, Abaco and Eleuthera; and Delta is running daily flights from Atlanta to both Eleuthera and Exuma. 

Silver Airways also runs a network of flights from Fort Lauderdale to The Bahamas, servicing Abaco, Eleuthera, Exuma, Bimini and Nassau. 

And the country’s national flag carrier, Bahamasair, operates flights to Nassau from Fort Lauderdale, Miami, West Palm Beach and Orlando. 

Later this month, another new route will launch to Nassau, with Frontier Airlines’ first-ever Bahamian service out of Miami.

That flight will operate from Miami to Nassau four times each week, with service on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays. 

Later this month, The Bahamas will seen the return of Canadian travel, with flights from Toronto to Nassau on Sunwing scheduled to begin on June 27.
