Vision Airlines has signed an agreement with the Grand Bahama Island Tourism Board to begin service to the northern Bahamas island beginning November 3, 2011.

The flights will originate from Ft Lauderdale, FL, Louisville, KY, Richmond, VA, Raleigh/Durham, NC and Baltimore/Washington airports. The new fares will start from $39 each-way from Ft Lauderdale and as low as $99 each way from the other cities, with certain restrictions.

“Grand Bahama is truly one of the jewels of the region, however getting there has always been both expensive and time consuming. With Vision Airlines’ new $99 non-stop flights, going to Grand Bahama will be easier and more affordable than ever before, ” says David Meers, Vision Airlines senior vice president and chief operating officer.

“People that have never visited will be surprised at how close and convenient Grand Bahama is to the east coast of Florida.”

Vision Airlines is currently in discussions with other cities on offering services to Grand Bahama.

Vision Airlines started 17 years ago as Vision Air. The company offered tourist flights from Las Vegas to the Grand Canyon. Over the years, the company grew its brand and a worldwide fleet of jets and is now a prominent charter carrier.

Fort Lauderdale International Film Festival (FLIFF) is heading to Grand Bahama in October this year. Tourism officials hope that the event will give greater exposure to the island and generate future revenue from the film industry.

Working in collaboration with the Singapore government's technology subsidiary, The Bahamas government has launched a new, improved website (www.bahamas.gov.bs) offers an new user interface with enhanced services for investors and the local community.
