Air Travel

Direct commercial flights from the U.S. to the Bahamas’ northwestern islands are few and far between. While Bimini is still accessible via direct flight from Fort Lauderdale on Silver Airways (dba United Express), the islands of Andros and Great Harbour Cay in the Berry Islands require a flight connection in Nassau unless going by private charter. Most major U.S. carriers fly to Nassau. The onward journey requires a flight on LeAir or Western Air. As strange as it may sound, connecting from North/Central Andros to South Andros or Mangrove Cay requires flying back to Nassau. Private charters and regularly scheduled charters also serve these islands. To get between the Bahamas’ northwestern islands, Captain Paul W. J. Harding (242/357–9876) operates a seaplane that offers bespoke pickup and drop-off points within Bimini, Andros, and the Berry Islands.
