Information on Airports in Bahamas
The Bahamas’ major international airport is Grand Bahamas International Airport, sometimes also known as Freeport International. However, the islands are also served by Nassau Lynden Pindling International Airport, located on Nassau Island (New Providence) and also serving Paradise Island.
Nassau LPIA has two terminals, one for international flights and the other for US flights. They are within walking distance of each other and each is served by a tourist information centre. Across the Bahamas taxis are the only public transport and neither of the main airports offers bus links, though both are reachable by car. Nassau LPIA has ATM machines at both terminals and there’s a local hotel which advertises itself as a bed-and-breakfast but offers a service closer to a boutique hotel, though there’s no accommodation integral to the airport itself.
Grand Bahamas International has a full 24 hour service, and although there is no local public bus link some hotels provide shuttle bus services to their premises. From Grand Bahamas accommodation is easily accessible by taxi, ranging from hotels offering sea views to full blown resorts. Again there are two terminals, for international and domestic flights, and both offer ATM machines. The international terminal offers a restaurant, along with a bar and a post office. There are also plenty of shops, including duty free.
Grand Bahamas has facilities for disabled access including accessibility throughout the airport, toilets for wheelchair users and accessible taxis for hire to take travellers into Freeport. Nassau LPIA has better facilities; the airport is fully accessible throughout with ramps, adapted toilets, lifts, and dedicated parking spaces, though the airport does ask that passengers who expect to require assistance contact the airline before travelling.
