Harbour Island Air Travel

If you plan to fly to Harbour Island, it will also be necessary to take a ferry

Direct air travel to Harbour Island is not a possibility, but you can get close enough to this destination by plane to still consider it a feasible option as you begin making your vacation plans.

Just two mile west of Harbour Island is the island of Eleuthera. This is the location of the nearest airport: the North Eleuthera Airport (ELH). It is a very small one, with just a single 6,020 foot asphalt runway, and a customs office in the building.

Regular flights are available from Florida, namely out of the airports in West Palm Beach and Ft. Lauderdale with Silver and United Airways. Another option is to fly to the Lynden Pindling International Airport on New Providence Island or Grand Bahama International Airport on Grand Bahama with an international carrier then switch to a domestic flight with BahamasAir or Sky Bahamas. Finally, you can schedule a charter from anywhere in the world if you're willing to pay a little extra for the private ride.
