RDU Announces New Nonstop Flights to The Bahamas 

Bahamasair Flight to Freeport becomes RDU’s 7th International Route

Nonstop flights from RDU to the Commonwealth of The Bahamas will launch this fall when Bahamasair begins service to the tropical destination of Freeport, Grand Bahama with connections to Nassau. Bahamasair will become RDU’s 14th airline and Freeport will be its 7th international destination when service begins in November. The islands of The Bahamas are popular with travelers and a destination of choice for those who enjoy scuba diving, boating adventures and exploring tropical beaches.  

“We are excited about offering travelers nonstop service on Bahamasair to one of their favorite Caribbean destinations,” said Michael Landguth, President and CEO of the Raleigh-Durham Airport Authority. “The direct flight is less than two hours and makes for a picture-perfect getaway.”  

Bahamasair will fly from RDU on Thursdays and Sundays on a 138-seat Boeing 737-700. The year-round service begins Nov. 17 and will operate out of Terminal 2. 

Bahamasair is the national airline of The Bahamas, proudly owned by the Bahamas Government. It is known for its strong commitment to safety and its access to 13 Bahamas destinations in its island chain.
