“We’re excited that Houstonians and residents throughout the region can experience the beauty and unique culture of The Bahamas without the hassle of a layover,” said Hon. Dionisio D’Aguilar, Bahamas Minister of Tourism and Aviation. “Nassau is a great destination for all types of travelers, as well as the gateway to our Out Islands, and the new Bahamasair service will make planning a vacation to The Bahamas that much easier.”
Nassau not only boasts some of the finest luxury resorts, casinos, restaurants and shopping districts in The Bahamas, but it is also the ideal destination to get a taste of an authentic Bahamian experience. From historical museums and culinary food tours, to fishing, diving, snorkeling and boating, there are plenty of attractions and activities for families, couples, groups of friends and solo travelers to enjoy.

“Bahamasair is delighted to offer residents of the Houston area reliable access to the gateway of paradise at a competitive price point,” said Frederick Donathan, Director of Sales and Marketing of Bahamasair. “The launch of this new direct service is a step in the right direction to expand the airline’s international route network.”
