Non-Stop Jetblue Flights Make Nassau Paradise Island Even More Accessible

Travelers will soon have even more options when seeking an easy escape to Nassau Paradise Island with the addition of two daily nonstop flights from Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood Airport (FLL) to Nassau’s Lynden Pindling International Airport (NAS).

Less than an hour flight from FLL, the white sand beaches, crystal clear blue water and world-class resorts of Nassau Paradise Island will be more accessible than ever before.

Beginning Aug. 1, JetBlue Airways will expand its nonstop flights from FLL to NAS from three to five flights per day. The first flight of the day will depart FLL at 7:52 a.m. and have visitors on the ground before 9:00 a.m. The last flight of the day will depart FLL at 4:25 p.m., bringing passengers to the island with time to spare before taking in one of the iconic sunsets.

Once in Nassau, flights depart back to FLL throughout the day with the last flight departing at 6:30 p.m., allowing for a full “final” vacation day on the sand.  Flights will be operated on the airline's Embraer 190 aircraft, which features spacious two-by-two seating, allowing all customers to enjoy the comfort of a window or aisle seat.
