Silver Airways noted in a press statement that “the best way” it can support The Bahamas in the wake of Hurricane Dorian is to resume its flights into Grand Bahama and Abaco, which it said it plans to do tomorrow.
Silver Airways Senior Vice President of Commercial and Finance Pedro Motta said in the release that the airline’s service is essential to the country at this time.
“We are thrilled to resume the necessary and much-needed service to two more islands in The Bahamas following Hurricane Dorian,” Motta said.
“The best way we can continue supporting our fellow neighbors in The Bahamas is to travel to their many fine islands and patronize their hotels and resorts, restaurants and attractions.”
According to the release, Silver will resume its flights to Freeport and Marsh Harbour on Thursday, with the hopes of resuming flights into Treasure Cay by February.
“Silver Airways is now offering daily flights between Fort Lauderdale and Freeport every day except Tuesdays, with two flights per day on Saturdays,” the release stated.
“In addition, Silver offers daily flights between Fort Lauderdale and Marsh Harbour every day except Mondays and Tuesdays.
“Silver Airways, synonymous with The Bahamas, offers more routes in The Bahamas than any other airline, including service to Freeport on Grand Bahama Island; Marsh Harbour in the Abacos; Nassau, the capital of The Bahamas on New Providence Island; George Town in Exuma; Governor’s Harbour in Eleuthera; Bimini; and North Eleuthera,” noted the release.
Bahamasair resumed its flights into Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport in Broward County, Florida, on Monday, operating from a makeshift arrivals and departure terminal at the Grand Bahama International Airport, which had to facilitate the proper protocols in order for the flight to be cleared into the United States.
