The Bahamas Islands are served by two main international airports. The first is that of Nassau on the island of New Providence. While the second is that of the island of Grand Bahama. The most important airport of the Bahamas is located on the island of New Providence, the island where the capital Nassau is located. Most tourists arriving by plane to the Bahamas use this airport to get to the Bahamas.

The Nassau International Airport or Lynden Pindling International Airport (NAS) is among the busiest airports in the Caribbean and is connected with international flights with numerous cities in the United States and Canada as well as with destinations in the Caribbean and Central America.


To get to the Bahamas from Europe there are direct flights only from the United Kingdom. So it is necessary to make a stopover with change of plane. Nassau airport is connected directly to Europe only by British Airways flights from London-Heathrow in connection from numerous European airports. From Nassau airport you can easily reach the other islands of the archipelago with short internal flights, almost all of them have a small airport.

The other airport, Grand Bahama International Airport has fewer flights, most of which come from the United States. Some charter flights from Europe also arrive here.

Air Caraibes also has seasonal flights to the island of San Salvador that depart from Paris-Orly airport.

Given the proximity to the United States and in particular to Florida, the combinations of flights that reach Miami or Fort Lauderdale from Europe can be interesting. Once in Florida it is very easy to take a flight to one of the Bahamas islands. There are many flights connecting Miami and Fort Lauderdale with Nassau or with another island in the Bahamas.

The flight time between Europe and the Bahamas varies between 10 and 12 hours, stops and plane changes excluded.
