NASSAU, The Bahamas, Friday June 16, 2017 – German leisure air carrier Condor Airways is scheduled to begin direct air service between Frankfurt, Germany, and Nassau as early as November.
The announcement was made yesterday by Prime Minister Hubert Minnis who said his government is actively seeking to increase airlift, not just from traditional markets in the United Sates, but also from markets “further afield.”
“Air service from the Frankfurt hub comes with the added benefit of connections to cities all over Western and Eastern Europe,” he said.
“We must work to resolve the challenges of connecting visitors to our multiple tourism destinations. I again note that we should identify any Bahamians interested in providing airlift from overseas. We must think boldly and widely, about how Bahamians can own, or be involved in, the multiple dimensions of tourism.”
Minnis said the increase in airlift into The Bahamas is in conjunction with the further development of Family Island tourism destinations.
