Bahamas airports open following Hurricane Irma

All airports in the Bahamas are open and both international and domestic service has resumed following category five Hurricane Irma.

Major hotels in the capital Nassau have already welcomed newly arrived guests, and cruise ships are calling at ports. Recreational marinas have also reopened after reporting mostly no damage.

The Bahamas’ main tourism spots in areas such as Nassau and Paradise Island, Grand Bahama Island and the Out Islands were unharmed. Damage from Irma was limited to parts of the southern islands, ranging from mostly cosmetic in places such as Crooked Island, Inaugua and Mayaguana, to major structural damage on Ragged Island.

Joy Jbrilu, director general, Bahamas Ministry of Tourism and Aviation, said, “We are thankful that the Bahamas has generally weathered the storm well, but we continue to evaluate the conditions across all of our islands as we gather information from hotels, attractions and partners. The Bahamas deeply appreciates the good wishes on our behalf this week, and we will seek to assist as we can.”
