Bahamasair launched Miami-Bimini route

The destination is served by ATR-42 aircraft

Officials from the Miami-Dade Aviation Department and Bahamasair celebrated in the last days the airline’s launch of four weekly flights between Miami and Bimini with a ribbon-cutting ceremony and gate reception at Miami International Airport (MIA) for the route’s first passengers. The inaugural departure flight to Bimini received a water cannon salute from Miami-Dade Fire Rescue.

Bahamasair currently flies to Nassau from Miami daily. The new route, served by ATR-42 aircraft that seats 50 passengers, will be MIA’s only service to Bimini and its seventh destination in the Bahamas. More than half a million passengers travel between MIA and the Bahamas annually.

It is the latest airline to launch new service at MIA this year.
