MIAMI, Feb. 5, 2024 ~ The Bahamas Ministry of Tourism, Investments & Aviation is thrilled to announce the addition of American Airlines' twice-weekly nonstop service between Miami and Governor's Harbour, Eleuthera. The new route, set to commence on February 3, is a strategic move to enhance airlift connectivity across the 16 beautiful islands of The Bahamas.

This marks the sixth destination in The Bahamas that American Airlines will be servicing, with other routes including North Eleuthera, Nassau, New Providence, Freeport, Grand Bahama, George Town, Exuma, and Marsh Harbour, Abaco.

In a ribbon-cutting ceremony held at both Miami and Governor's Harbour airports, Deputy Prime Minister I. Chester Cooper and Minister of Works and Family Island Affairs Hon. Clay Sweeting joined American Airlines and Governor's Harbour Airport executives to celebrate the inaugural flight.

"This new route is a significant step as we continue to expand American's presence in the Caribbean and Atlantic regions, 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."
