Which Airport??

I am planning a trip to The Westin at Our Lucaya. I was hoping to fly Jet Blue to Nassau. How far is the trip from Nassau to Grand Bahama?

1. Re: Which Airport??

The distance between Nassau (nas) and Grand Bahamas (FPO) is about 90 miles, and can only be traveled by air. (no ferries - this is open water)..

You'll add about $200-$250 Plus airport time to your trip. Not at all worth the savings.

If you are going to Our Lucaya, you need airfare to Freeport, Grand Bahama Island (FPO)

Where r u flying from? We come from NY we flyinto Miami and take another flight from there. We can't get a direct flight to GBI, but it is a short flight from Miami - I hear you can get flight from FT Lauderdale also. I don't believe it is worth flying to Nassau and then to Freeport

I've found that AirTran flies to Grand Bahama for relatively cheap if they serve your area. We're looking for a good deal on airfare to Nassau from Cleveland.

US Airways goes direct from LaGuardia into Freeport on Saturdays. You can island hop from NAS to FPO, but it might be cost prohibitive. It really depends on budget and how bad you need to go Jet Blue.
