Bahamasair to fly Miami to Bimini

Mon Mar 19, 2018 5:20 am

This is very welcome news. Currently the only options are a very expensive Cessna or a ferry (which is a pain as U.S. Customs at the port is very, very slow). Interestingly, they will be using ATR aircraft which I believe is a type they currently don't fly.

Bahamasair replaced its Dash 8s with ATR 42s and 72s.

Silver dropped it recently, lets see how Bahamasair does. Silver and Skybahamas still fly there from FLL though. An ATR-42 might be a little much airplane for the route, but I hope it does well. I do know that the ticket prices likely will be pretty hefty and they usually are regardless if its an ATR or a Cessna Caravan.
