Travelers wishing to visit the Bahamian island of Eleuthera will be able to fly from the airline’s hub in Miami to Governor’s Harbour Airport on the island.

After the new flight was announced, Chester Cooper, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Tourism Investments and Aviation, praised the airline’s efforts in bringing another flight to The Bahamas, saying:

This new airlift, just one month into 2024, underscores a holistic approach and unwavering commitment of the Ministry to aggressively expand airlift into our 16 island destinations.

We continue to offer a diverse authentic experience to travelers, in partnership with our industry partners and airlines such as American Airlines. We look forward to fostering continued partnerships and providing a uniquely memorable Bahamas experience to travelers with this new American Airlines route.

Upgrades to Governor’s Harbour Airport

Meanwhile, the Governor’s Harbour Airport recently underwent upgrades and expansions to its departures and arrivals terminals. Moreover, the island made improvements to the airport’s fire station.

Jose Maria Giraldo, American Airlines Managing Director of Operations for Mexico, the Caribbean and Central America said of the launch:

We are excited to celebrate the launch of our sixth destination in The Bahamas, Governor’s Harbour, further strengthening our commitment to this unspoiled paradise. This new route marks our next step as we continue to expand American’s presence in the Caribbean and Atlantic, where we are proud to lead as the largest U.S. airline.

With this new destination, we will now be offering up to 30 peak-day flights to The Bahamas, playing a vital role in the country’s travel and tourism industry.

Meanwhile, the new direct service from American Airlines will operate on Tuesdays and Saturdays.

Located in the Bahamas archipelago, Eleuthera is a long and thin island, famed for its beautiful pink sand beaches. One of these is French Leave Beach, while Surfer’s Beach, close to Gregory Town, offers great waves. Meanwhile, Ten Bay Beach in the southeast of the island has shallow waters and a cave to explore close by. Ocean Hole is a natural inland swimming location where swimmers can spot turtles and tropical fish. To see more green sea turtles, travelers can visit Edwin’s Turtle Lake Marine Reserve.

Moreover, the resorts on Eleuthera have given the island its reputation for being one of the friendliest places in the world. Visitors have a choice of upscale resorts, secluded villas and quaint inns which keep them returning each year.

Now that American Airlines is offering the new route to Governor’s Harbour Airport on the island, this might be the perfect time to visit Eleuthera in the Caribbean.
