By: Alexander Britell - November 5, 2023

JetBlue just kicked off an historic new route between Los Angeles and The Bahamas. 

The carrier has officially begun new flights between Los Angeles International Airport and Lynden Pindling International Airport in Nassau, The Bahamas. 

The new route, which launched this weekend, is the first-ever nonstop flight between Los Angeles and The Bahmas.

The nonstop flight is operating once weekly on Saturdays. 

Bahamas Deputy Prime Minister and Tourism Minister Chester Cooper and Latin Duncombe, director general of The Bahamas’ Ministry of Tourism, led a Bahamian delegation for the launch event in Los Angeles. 

JetBlue’s service is the beginning of a wave of new flights between the West Coast of the United States and Nassau Paradise Island.

Next month, Alaska Airlines is launching its own first-ever service to The Bahamas, with service from both Los Angeles and Seattle. 

Both of those routes will be operating for the high season between Dec. 14 and April 10 of next year. 

Alaska-Nassau and Seattle-Nassau will each be operating three times per week.
