NADIn a statement released yesterday, the Nassau Airport Development Co has announced that operations will continue as normal at Lynden Pindling International Airport through to end of day 7 September, ahead of Hurricane Irma.

The statement continued:

“The public is reminded to check with their individual airline regarding any changes in flight times, or cancellations.”


“Airport operations will resume only when the ‘All clear’ is given by the Met Department/National Emergency Management Agency, after which all airport employees will be expected to safely report for duty to assess any damage, clean up and restore premises to normal condition, for the ordinary resumption of operations. A statement will be issued by NAD to advise the traveling public as to when the airport resumes full operations.”

“The public is requested to listen carefully to the formal media for updates regarding both cessation and resumption of airport operations as there might be changes in the forward movement of Hurricane Irma requiring adjustments to the operations timelines.”

The southeast Bahamas and the Turks and Caicos Islands have been placed under a Hurricane Watch and can feel impact of Hurricane Irma within 48 hours.

Due to the proximity of Hurricane Irma and the forecasted weather associated with the storm, the Cabinet Office announced the closure of all government offices, except for essential services, at 5:00 pm 6 September, 2017 until further notice.
