Bahamasair explains irregular operations on Sunday

NASSAU, BAHAMAS- Bahamasair has advised the travelling public that its Sunday, July 7 schedule was negatively impacted by weather-related closures at both the Lynden Pindling and Orlando International Airports.

“Unfortunately, the Lynden Pindling International Airport closed several times yesterday due to thunder and lightning storms which lingered around the island of New Providence for most of the day, creating a number of delays,” outlined a statement issued today from Bahamasair.

“Further compounding these challenges was the closure of the Orlando International Airport due to lightning, which further impacted the schedule and ultimately resulted in one of our Orlando bound flights having to be diverted to Fort Lauderdale.”

Bahamasair said with the passage of these weather systems, it is expected that all flights today should proceed as scheduled with minimal disruption.

“We wish to thank the traveling public for their continued patience, as these delays were unavoidable. Our intent is to consistently provide a safe and dependable service as we strive to be the airline of choice connecting the islands of The Bahamas to the world,” the Bahamasair statement concluded.
