With over 700 islands and some of the clearest water on the planet, The Bahamas is a one of the top vacation destinations in the world. The Bahamas is also easily accessible by air, with eleven international airports for your private jet.
While commercial flights provide families and smaller groups with great travel options to the islands, the travel logistics for moving a large group might not fit based on your departure city, flight times, the number seats available, or you simply may be looking for a safer, elevated travel experience with a private jet. Some of the benefits of charter flight include:
Nonstop travel for your entire group
Travel with privacy, flexibility, security and convenience
No minimum stays required or travel date restrictions
No name change fees or baggage fees
Other personalized enhancements can be added, such as catering, branding opportunities and potential expedited security/customs screening
