Bahamasair stops night flights to Marsh Harbour

Airline’s management team says runway lights not working

 

NASSAU, BAHAMAS – An issue with malfunctioning airport lights at the Marsh Harbour Airport has forced the national flag carrier to suspend its night flights into that airport.

Bahamasair confirmed as much on Wednesday via a press statement.

The airline’s management team has advised that the “runway lights in Marsh Harbour are not working and as a result, scheduled evening service to and from that island has been adjusted for daytime flying.”

This national flag carrier indicated that the change takes immediate effect.

The last flight from Nassau to Marsh Harbour will now leave at 4:00 p.m. daily.

Bahamasair has confirmed that flights from Marsh Harbour to Nassau will depart at 4:55 p.m. daily.

The airline has further advised that due to this adjustment in schedule, there will be no service to Treasure Cay, Abaco.

All Treasure Cay bound passengers will be accommodated through Marsh Harbour, according to the airline.

When Eyewitness News Online contacted Aviation Minister Dionisio D’Aguilar for comment on Thursday, he said that he would speak to the airport controller on the island before making any further comment.
