Odyssey Aviation Bahamas began offering handling services on November 14, 2011, at two new Bahamian locations–Governor’s Harbour Airport and Rock Sound Airport–both in Eleuthera.

Odyssey’s expansion of handling services on the island of Eleuthera coincides with the increased volume of traffic during the vacation season.

“Holiday traffic can create significant chaos for small islands,” says Steven Kelly, president of Odyssey Aviation. “Flight departments, more than ever, desire good service and trusted representation for their passengers on arrival. Through its handling services, Odyssey Aviation Governor’s Harbour and Odyssey Aviation Rock Sound bring what no one else has to this market–reliability, consistency and a high level of safety and quality service.”

Eleuthera is 60 miles east of Nassau and is best known for its tiny coastal islands and secluded beaches, the most famous being Harbour Island.

Sylvie McCartney is the station manager for both of the new locations on Eleuthera. Sylvie trained at Odyssey Aviation Nassau for several months and is fully prepared to bring Odyssey’s professionalism and dedication to these two airports.

Odyssey Aviation is an independent fixed base operator (FBO) brand headquartered in Nassau with four FBO and handling locations at Nassau International Airport, Exuma International Airport, Governor’s Harbour Airport and Rock Sound Airport.

Odyssey offers customs and immigration (24/7 at Odyssey Aviation Nassau), fuel, handling, parking, hangar, catering, pilot lounges, courtesy vehicles, rental cars, flight planning rooms, concierge services, refreshment bars, showers and modernized lounge areas for passengers.

During an address to a regional Oil Pollution Preparedness, Response and Co-operation (OPRC) seminar held in The Bahamas this week, Environment Minister Earl Deveaux (pictured, file photo) stressed the importance of having the correct policies in place before commencing drilling in local waters.

The Bahamas Real Estate Association (BREA) is targeting a broader international client base through the launch of an online listing service and by building ties with regional and global property associations.
