Nassau, Bahamas: Western Air, the longstanding Bahamas- based commercial airline, known for daily scheduled flights throughout the islands, announces the start of its Nassau – Fort Lauderdale route on May 19th, 2022.
Operating a growing fleet of Embraer ERJ145LR Jets (50-Seater), the airline will fly between Lynden Pindling International Airport and Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport with an all-jet, daily schedule.
Focusing on the quick, easy getaways and the active business & leisure travellers, the airline will offer all open tickets valid for six (6) months, with no change or cancellation fees. Giving passengers on the NAS-FLL route unprecedented flexibility to travel on their own time, with no fear of losing their ticket. The same flexible ticket format Western Air’s frequent flyers have grown accustomed to over the last 20+ years thus far. The airline believes the shorter flight time on the EMB145 Jet will also be a welcome bonus to new passengers.
Additionally, Western Air’s Private Charter Division expanded its charter offering to Florida and the other 47 contiguous US states, Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands.
The airline was granted the required approvals and licenses to conduct commercial flights between the United States and The Bahamas in 2021. With the acquisition of additional jet aircrafts and increasing travel demand, Western Air is enthusiastic about jetting into the Fort Lauderdale market.
