BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT) — If you are planning a tropical family vacation, this may be the thing for you. You can now fly to The Bahamas directly from Birmingham!
The Birmingham Shuttlesworth International Airport outlined how the program works Thursday. Back to back flights will be scheduled each week throughout the summer season. The new flight program also includes a vacation package at a resort on Grand Bahama Island.
“They can expect to leave Birmingham at 9:05 in the morning and arrive on Grand Bahama Island by 11:55. Yes, a very short flight. And as a matter of fact, once you get on Grand Bahama Island you have a 12 minute ride to your hotel, and in most cases your hotel will be located on the wonderful beachfront, and of course the warm Bahamian hospitality will be awaiting you,” says Carmel Churchill, director of the Grand Bahama Island Tourism Board.
The vacation packages start at $699 per person. The direct flights continue until August 10th. For more information, click here.
