New Route of the Day – Americas (3 February 2024): American between Miami and Governor’s Harbour


American commenced flights between Miami and Governor’s Harbour on the island of Eleuthera in the Bahamas on Saturday 3 February. The 400-kilometre service will be maintained 2-weekly, on Tuesdays and Saturdays, with the 76-seat E175 aircraft, operated by American’s regional subsidiary Envoy Air under the American Eagle brand. It faces no competition between the two cities.

Governor’s Harbour Airport recently underwent expansions and upgrades to the departures and arrivals terminals, along with improvements to its fire station.
