Treasure Cay is one of two islands in the Abacos grouping of the Bahamas that has a full airport, which makes it one of the easiest islands to access for a vacation.

Often, the most direct route is not always the most cost effective. There are three larger airports in the Bahamas that are sometimes easier to get cheaper flights into, and from there you can plan to fly to Treasure Cay aboard the domestic carrier Bahamas Air. These airports are Lynden Pindling International Airport on New Providence Island, Grand Bahama International Airport on Grand Bahama, and Marsh Harbour International Airport on Great Abaco. In terms of travel time, Marsh Harbour International will be the best choice because it is so close to Treasure Cay, but each airport has its merits if you encounter similar pricing at all three.

Chartering a private flight from either of these airports instead of flying BahamasAir is an option as well, and it is especially appealing if you're traveling with a larger group. This way, you'll pay one rate for the entire plane rather than having to buy a ticket per person.

The following chart tells you which airlines offer scheduled service from the U.S. and where they are flying from. The online booking services don't necessarily know about the most logical options so it helps to see which airlines offer direct flights to this location.
