Young Bahamian pilot secures dream route from Toronto to Nassau with Air Canada
On Friday, March 8, Bahamian pilot George Allen took off from Pearson International Airport in Toronto, Ontario, destined for Lynden Pindling International Airport in Nassau, The Bahamas.
This day marked the first flight for First Officer Allen on his “dream route” for Air Canada, just days after his 33rd birthday (March 3).
Allen started his career in The Bahamas with Golden Wings Charter, Pineapple Air and flight instructing with Fred Mcfee.
Allen was hired by Air Canada in February of 2018 and thought it would be several years before he would have the chance to secure his dream route between Nassau and Toronto – however he was happily surprised when his hard work and perseverance paid off just one year after coming on board with the airline.
Allen will be flying this route several times a month in a Boeing 767, a 288-passenger aircraft.
He is proud to be bringing so many excited guests to visit his beautiful home country and said securing this route was like a dream come true.
