Transportation to/on the BahamasFrom the various parts of the North America the Bahamas is very well served by air. Being so close to Florida there are regular as well as relatively inexpensive flights from Miami, Ft Lauderdale and Orlando and the other East Coast gateways like New York and Boston to the Bahamas.
US carriers flying to The Bahamas include American Airlines, Continental, Delta Airlines, TWA and US Airways. Bahamas Air, the national airline, flies between Miami and Nassau and Freeport; West Palm Beach, Orlando and Fort Lauderdale and Nassau; and West Palm Beach and Marsh Harbor.
Air Canada flies between Nassau and Toronto and Montreal. British Airways flies directly between London and Nassau or Freeport. American Airlines, Delta Airlines and Virgin Atlantic connect the UK and The Bahamas via Miami, Orlando and Fort Lauderdale. From within the Caribbean, Air Jamaica flies four times weekly between Nassau and Montego Bay. Cubana has flights between Havana and Nassau.
The Bahamas has seven international airports, including the two major hubs: Nassau International Airport and Freeport International Airport. Some flights also land at Paradise Island Airport, Marsh Harbor (Abacos), North Eleuthera and Governor's Harbor (Eleuthera), and George Town (Exumas).
As the incoming flights arrive a taxi shows up even on the more remote Out Islands. In spite of that if you are unable to get a taxi then someone will surely radio for a taxi on your behalf from the airport.
The passengers traveling to the islands of the Bahamas are served by many of the large airlines and several charter carriers as well. Frequent flights are available to Nassau, Freeport and The Out Islands. No direct flights are available from Europe though. But a quick stopover in Miami is easy and perfectly doable.
Even though there are many nonstop flights from the United States to the Caribbean, connections to some of the smaller islands are usually made through San Juan, Puerto Rico or St. Thomas, USVI. Now, San Juan serves as a major hub for American Airlines, which has greatly expanded its Caribbean service. Regular scheduled services are available from San Juan and St. Thomas.
