JetBlue to launch direct flights from Los Angeles to Nassau in November

NASSAU, BAHAMAS — The Ministry of Tourism has announced that JetBlue will begin a direct route from Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) in California to Lynden Pindling International Airport (LPIA) in Nassau this Fall.

Saturday service to and from the second largest city in the USA will begin November 4, in time for the key Thanksgiving and Christmas seasons.

Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Tourism, Aviation and Investments, Chester Cooper said Team Tourism’s mission has been to expand airlift to The Bahamas.

“We met with JetBlue in New York late last year about expansion of its routes to the Bahamas and into to the west coast, in particular,” said Cooper. “This is a value add for a huge market whose appetite for direct access to The Bahamas has gone unsatisfied.”

Cooper said it’s one of many developments that have come out of increased tourism missions to our global partners that have strengthened tourism and aviation.

He noted that the Los Angeles/Nassau direct route will allow for more connectivity to major markets in Asia and the Pacific, putting The Bahamas’ 16 destinations in easier reach for new visitors.

“It’s a major development and we’re proud of the partnership with JetBlue and the collaboration we’ve been able to achieve,” Cooper said.

The new Los Angeles/Nassau route will also feature JetBlue’s award-winning Mint premium service.
