How to Reach Port Lucaya by Airplane

Port Lucaya is just a short drive away from the nearest airport

Port Lucaya was developed with the express purpose of being a major tourist destination, and for decades it has done its designers proud. Hundreds of tourists a week fly into Freeport, Grand Bahama and head directly to Port Lucaya for the duration of their stay.

The fastest way to get to Port Lucaya is to fly into the Grand Bahama International Airport, then take the 18 minute drive into town. Grand Bahama International Airport is located in Freeport, and is a privately owned entity run by Huthinson Port Holding and the Port Group.

Domestic flights from around the rest of the Bahamas are popular here as well, as tourists either start their trip at the Lynden Pindling International Airport on New Providence Island and make a connecting flight, or because many people like to island hop and see a little bit of everything the Bahamas has to offer.

It is important to note that there is another airport on Grand Bahama, even though the likelihood of you using it is slim. Set on the extreme west point of Grand Bahama is the aptly named West End Airport. It is open from 8:0 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, and mainly handles cargo planes.

If you'll be flying from the states this information can aid the planning process. The online booking services don't always know about the least costly options so it helps to see which airlines actually provide direct service to this location.
