Bahamasair, has relaunched a major route between Florida and The Bahamas.
The Bahamas’ national flag carrier just restarted service between Orlando International Airport and Grand Bahama International Airport in Freeport.
The flights, which resumed this week, will be operating twice each week, with service on Mondays and Thursdays.
The flights will be operating through Sept. 10, according to the Bahamas Ministry of Tourism, Investments and Aviation.
The service will then resume again between Nov. 17 and Jan 12, 2023, for the peak winter tourist season.
“Travel is back in a big way this summer, and we are ready for it. We are making travel for Floridians easier than ever with more nonstop service to The Bahamas,” said Chester Cooper, The Bahamas’ Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Tourism, Investments & Aviation. “Florida remains a priority market for The Bahamas, and we are thrilled to expand our flight offerings from the state with these weekly nonstop options from Orlando on Bahamasair.”
It’s a significant boost for Grand Bahama, which has been seeing a tourism resurgence since the country first reopened for tourism amid the pandemic.
Indeed, travelers increasingly have the island on their radar, drawn to Grand Bahama’s collection of natural beauty, copious white-sand beaches and a growing slate of activities, including the return of the popular Goombay Summer Festival.
That’s along with an enviable selection of villas, too.
And it’s part of a growing trend in Orlando, which has quietly become a major source market for Caribbean tourism in the last several years.
More and more carriers are looking to the city as a hub for Caribbean flights, particularly carriers like Spirit and Frontier Airlines.
