JetBlue to Launch Nonstop Service from Los Angeles to Nassau, Bahamas
JetBlue announced today that it will launch its first-ever nonstop flight from Los Angeles to Nassau. The new service connecting the United States West Coast to the Islands of The Bahamas will debut on 4 November, with a once- weekly Saturday flight from Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) to Nassau’s Sir Lynden Pindling Airport (NAS).
“Over the past nine months, the Ministry has been in constant dialogue with key international aviation stakeholders, including JetBlue to increase airlift capacity to meet the demand for travel to our destination,” said the Honourable I. Chester Cooper, Bahamas Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Tourism, Investments & Aviation.
The Los Angeles/Nassau nonstop route will also allow for more connectivity from major markets in Asia and the Pacific, putting The Bahamas’ 16 destinations in easier reach for new visitors. The new Los Angeles/Nassau route will also feature JetBlue’s award-winning Mint premium service.
Los Angeles International Airport is the world’s fifth busiest airport, with 645 daily commercial flights to 162 destinations.
The new route comes just a day after JetBlue also revealed plans for flight from New York’s JFK airport to Belize.
