American adds new non-stop flight to the Bahamas
Dec 31, 2018

Three new nonstop routes to the Bahamas have been launched by American Airlines, including two new routes from Charlotte, N.C., with new weekly flights on Saturdays to both Marsh Harbour in Abaco and North Eleuthera. Those two routes provide significant increases in traffic to two of the more sought-after destinations in the Out Islands of the Bahamas.

Abaco, an archipelago known for its beaches and fishing, is home to some of the Bahamas’ most popular hotels such as the Bluff House on Green Turtle Cay and the Hope Town Harbour Lodge on Elbow Cay. Harbour Island, famous for its pink sand beach, features a collection of high-end boutique hotels and picturesque colonial architecture.

American Airlines has also launched a new route from Chicago O’Hare to Nassau, a service that will also operate weekly on Saturdays. American has additionally launched a new seasonal expansion from Miami International Airport to Freeport in Grand Bahama, with two additional morning departures every day.

“The addition of several new flight options from American Airlines is welcomed news for the local tourism industry,” said Bahamas Tourism Minister Dionisio D’Aguilar. “As our room inventory increases, we are eager to meet that demand with more seats bringing travelers to our islands. The benefits will be felt especially during our winter months when tourists from cold areas are looking for a warm, sunny vacation.”

The Bahamas, which was named Caribbean Destination of the Year in the recent Caribbean Travel Awards, has seen its highest arrival growth in years.
