Charter flights to Andros (Marsh Harbor or Treasure Cay)

Hi folks -

We're planning to take 5-6 people to Green Turtle Cay in April of next year. The cost of commercial travel (e.g. United Express FLL-TCB) is terrible - $600/person.

We've looked into charters and everything we've heard is that the average lifetime of a Bahamian charter flight company is measured in months.

Is there a long-standing reliable charter flight service that we can use to get from Florida (MIA or FLL) to somewhere on Andros or even over to the airport on Green Turtle Cay?

Thanks, Lee

$600/ per person sounds absurd! Is it possible you are looking at high season times or holiday travel, as I've never heard of it being that expensive to travel from FLL/MIA to Abaco via commercial airline? You could get a far better charter rate per person.

There are many long term charter companies in the Bahamas, so I'm not sure where you get your "measured in months" information from. You will find better prices into Marsh Harbour as opposed to Treasure Cay, though Treasure Cay is closer to GTC. While you have posted your question on the Andros forum, I am guessing you meant Abaco.

There are no flights into Green Turtle Cay, as they have no airstrip.

For charter service, you may wish to take a look at Abaco Air, which has been in operation for 35 YEARS!! They can be contacted at (242) 367 - 2266 or reservations@flyabacoair.com

Or call Odyssey Aviation in Nassau who maintain a charter service and can put you in touch with a charter service of your choice. (242) 702 - 0231 and ask for Racquel Hinds, the charter service manager. Her email is rhinds@odysseyaviationfsp.com

Been around for 25 years out of FLL. Used them a few years ago to go to Eleuthera with 9 people.
