Air Travel

Lynden Pindling International Airport (NAS) is 8 miles west of Nassau. Many major U.S. airlines fly to Nassau from several different gateways; in addition, the nation's flag carrier, Bahamasair, flies to Nassau from four airports in Florida: Fort Lauderdale (FLL), Miami (MIA), Orlando (MCO), and West Palm Beach (PBI). There is no public bus service from the airport to hotels. Many smaller airlines depart from Nassau to the other islands of the Bahamas. Major car-rental companies are represented at the airport. A taxi ride for two people from the airport to downtown Nassau costs $27; to Paradise Island, $42 (this includes the $1 bridge toll); and to Cable Beach, $25. Each additional passenger is $3, and excess baggage costs $2 a bag.
