The island of Grand Bahama is set for a serious tourism boost next month, with the debut of a pair of new nonstop routes.
On Nov. 5, American Airlines will be flying nonstop from Charlotte, North Carolina to Freeport, Grand Bahama.
And on Nov. 17, Bahamian national flag carrier Bahamasair will kick off a significant new route flying nonstop from Raleigh, North Carolina to Grand Bahama.
The American Airline service will be operating once weekly, with nonstop service on Saturdays.
Bahamasair will be flying between Raleigh-Durham and Grand Bahama on Thursdays and Sundays on a 138-seat Boeing 737.
It’s part of a continued recovery for tourism in Grand Bahama, a sector that should also see new energy with the soon-to-close sale of the iconic Grand Lucayan resort.
The island, about 55 miles east of Florida, has some of the most magnificent beaches in The Bahamas and a strong dive, snorkeling and eco-tourism offering.
It’s also one of the most popular yachting stops in The Bahamas, with a growing luxury villa portfolio, too.
