Bahamasair returns to Raleigh-Durham International Airport

The Bahamas Ministry of Tourism, Investments & Aviation (BMOTIA) have announced the return of its popular nonstop flight service from North Carolina’s Raleigh-Durham International Airport (RDU) to Bahamas’ Freeport, Grand BahamaInternational Airport (FPO).

Operated by Bahamasair, the direct flight will allow North Carolinians to fly from pines to palms and touch down in Freeport in less than two hours beginning Nov. 12.

Flights will depart from and return to RDU on Thursdays and Sundays year-round – ideal for a long weekend getaway or an extended vacation. Freeport, the second largest city in The Bahamas, is a tropical playground where ecological wonders coexist with idyllic beaches, historic sites, waterfront restaurants and shops filled with Bahamian-made crafts and keepsakes.
