The mandate was to provide a safe and reliable mode of air transportation throughout the archipelagic nation and internationally. The National Flag carrier’s purpose was to provide an ‘Essential Service’ bridging Nassau, the nation’s capital and the remote ‘Family of Islands’. Bahamasair currently operates a route network of thirteen domestic destinations throughout the Islands Of The Bahamas and nine international destinations in the United States, Turks & Caicos, and Haiti.
