FAQs - booking The Bahamas flights

  • What direct flights are there from the UK to the Bahamas?

    Direct flights from the UK to the Bahamas are available from Heathrow Airport, flying with British Airways to Nassau International Airport, with a flight time of about 9h 50min.

  • Are child seats required in the Bahamas?

    If you plan on driving in the Bahamas with young children, you may need a child restraint or booster seat. Seats with a 5-point harness are required for children who weigh under 40 pounds. After this, they must use a booster seat until they are 4 feet, 9 inches tall. These can usually be provided by your car hire company. These seats aren't required in taxis, but some taxi companies can provide them upon request.

  • What documentation do I need to travel to the Bahamas?

    For UK citizens, you can travel around the Bahamas for an initial period of 21 days. However, if an extension is required, you must apply for it at the Department of Immigration in Nassau. If the extension is approved, you are allowed to stay for a maximum of eight months. Furthermore, your passport must be valid for at least six months from the date you intend to leave the Bahamas.

  • Which airport is recommended to fly into to get to Great Abaco Island?

  • Are there car hire desks at Nassau Airport?

    If you plan on driving during your trip to the Bahamas, it may be easiest to pick up your vehicle at the airport when you start your trip. You can find a number of car hire companies available in the terminal, and you may need to take a free shuttle to the car park to pick up your vehicle. Most desks are located opposite the Baggage Claim area.

  • What documents do I need to apply for a visa to visit the Bahamas?

    You won't need a visa if you're travelling on a UK passport, but you may need one if you're from another country. If you do need a visa, you'll need to present your passport, proof of funds, your flight information (including either a return or onward flight) and proof of your accommodation in the Bahamas. You will also need to supply two passport photos with a white background.

Top tips for finding cheap flights to The Bahamas

  • Enter your preferred departure airport and travel dates into the search form above to unlock the latest The Bahamas flight deals.
  • To reduce your carbon emissions when flying from the UK to the Bahamas, check out flights with American Airlines from Heathrow Airport (LHR) to Nassau Lynden Pindling International Airport (NAS), via Charlotte Douglas Airport (CLT). On this flight, average CO2 emissions are cut by about 32% for each passenger.
  • British Airways offers frequent flights from the UK to multiple destinations in The Bahamas. If you choose their direct flight from London Heathrow Airport (LHR) to Nassau's Lynden Pindling International Airport (NAS), you'll likely depart from Terminal 5.
  • It’s worth checking out flights with Air Canada if you’re travelling on a budget. They have regular flights from Heathrow Airport to Nassau International Airport in the Bahamas, via stopovers in Montreal and Toronto. WestJet also has cheap flights on the same route from London Gatwick Airport (LGW), which you can book through KAYAK.
  • If you book Business Class from London to the Bahamas with British Airways, you'll be able to use lounges on both ends of your trip. You can use the British Airways' Galleries Club Lounge at Heathrow and the Lignum Club at Nassau Airport on your return flight.
  • If you want to explore the islands of the Bahamas, we recommend flying into Nassau International Airport, on Providence Island, and using Nassau as a base to travel to other islands. There are more connections from here and more flights available from the UK to Nassau in particular.
  • While London is generally the best choice for direct flights to the Bahamas, it may not be convenient for your trip. Manchester (MAN) and Edinburgh (EDI) are two other good options for departure cities if you don't mind routes with a single stopover. You can find one-stop flights from both cities to Nassau, Marsh Town and George Town.
  • When flying to the Bahamas from London, getting to your airport of departure is made easier by using the reliable express-train services available from various Central London stations. You can get to Heathrow in around 15min from Paddington, to Gatwick in about 30min from Victoria and Stansted from Liverpool Street in roughly 50min. Make sure to purchase tickets in advance to get a cheaper price.
  • A cost-effective way to get from Nassau International Airport to the city centre is by bus; it only takes around 30min and costs about B$2.50 (£1.88). If you want to grab a taxi, then expect to pay around B$35 (£26.30) for a roughly 15min journey.

Airline reviews

Extremely low quality food. Ordered muslim meals but got vegetarian meals instead. Muslims are not vegetarian, they love meat as much as any other non-vegetarian person, so make a decent effort to get halal meals. Regardless, the vegan sandwich was absolutely tasteless. I am pretty sure the company making that sandwich does not even do a taste test itself

Arriving at Heathrow was a complete disaster because air bridge broke down and it took ages to find spare stairs! Something that I'd kick Heathrow in the shins for, not Finnair - who were great.

Not great. Flight attendants were aloof, food was mediocre, seats that I paid $150 were given to someone else without any concession. I will probably never use kayak again. Terrible experience from start to finish.

The wine was low quality Finnair label stuff in small bottles and only one small bottle each. Embarassinng. A competing airline served me two generous glasses of a nice South African Shiraz from regular wine bottles, a Beck's beer, and a generous Dewar's White Label on the rocks. Cabin service was good and polite, plane interior was beautiful, but cramped.

All good- I love BA and the professionalism of the crew and pilots.

Great flight- smooth, nice crew, nice clean aircraft, departed a little late but arrived 10 early.

It was listed on my ticket as Finnair but there was no indication that the flight was Finnair. In fact the number was even different. There were no employees there until exactly 2 hours before so we had to wait in line at Iberia and hope

Sorting on line would have been appreciated Onward information on flights missed No ability to get seating arranged before we got to gate Very unfriendly at gate

The flight was Finnair but there was no indications anywhere that the checkin was for Finnair also. There was no one to ask. I think at a minimum they should list the code shares so people don’t stand in the wrong line for an hour.

I booked the flight with Finnair, which made the arrangements for downloading a boarding pass unnecessarily complicated. I wouldn't do that again. Instead I'd book direct with AA.

terrible. Because I felt very unwell during the flight. How do they leave a woman alone in the middle of 2 men? an obese man who was falling on top of me.

Entertainment... No earphones passed out. Many including me couldn't use the TV. Legroom was good. Crew was indifferent and a bit surly. Free wifi was a nice convenience. Check in desk location was unknown. Gate number on the boarding passes was wrong.

The best experience that I have had traveling with JetBlue!

Not sure why planes don't just board back passengers first.. also wifi connection could be beneficial and keeps passengers occupied

Delayed by almost an hour - I also noticed that all JetBlue flights departing from PBI were delayed yet the weather was perfect.

The staff at JFK were rude and unhelpful. I was harassed for the same bag that I used on my flight to jfk with no issues claiming it was the inappropriate size. The women then allowed my travel companion to board with the same size bag because they thought she was more “humble”. Also on the flight when informing the flight attendant that nationals no longer have to fill out the Bahamas immigration form my statement was met with eye rolling and attitude.

On-time departure, smooth ride for sure. All was good except, once again, there was no movies/TV as it wasn’t functioning.

I actually missed my first scheduled flight and caught it the next day. I think the check in procedure was mishandled by the baggage handler but the staff were very accommodating.

There was only internet service for the last hour. Other than that is was a great flight. Good Crew and landed a head of time.

Best Thing flight took less time than programmed, quick entry and exit. Recommended!

I think Virgin is one of the best flying experiences, especially from/to the UK. The staff are so helpful and fun, the food is good, seats comfortable, goof entertainment and great value. Check in and boarding is pretty pain free. I also find that the other passengers are generally so kind and considerate than when I've flown other airlines.

Cabin crew on our flight showed lack of any customer service gruff and acting annoyed if you asked anything and I mean anything Example a man on the seat over dropped his beer on my husbands blanket We asked if we could switch out blankets cabin crew Said. No we don’t have any extras OK well can you take the wet one Cabin crew looked disgusted and annoyed Took it no OK or yes just a growl

Quick flight. But cabin crew were very noisy and talking too much, especially when we were seated at the back of the plane trying to sleep through the night .

My ticket was for Premium Economy and all the seats were taken, I was placed in Economy class and I’m looking for a refund.

Unfortunately delayed 2 hrs due to faulty tyre.. which had to be changed, but better safe than sorry.

The delay was an issue. Other than that. Every thing good

Hi vergin Atlantic service was good but the flight ticket agent travel up charge me extra 57 pounds as a airport charges, actually I refuse to pay but they say if I not pay £57 then they say you will not be able to travel from Heathrow to goa ,so for me there was no option and it was just 3 day before my departure so i paid, so please look in to the matter. And I have a receipt of £ 57 as well .thanks

Staff didn’t check cabin well for landing seemed more interested in chatting to each other. Food was poor and differed from pre order.

We were in the last group to be called to the flight - which was 30 minutes late taking off. While we were lucky enough to have been given bulkhead seats (due to a medical condition I’d told them about beforehand) the seats weren’t particularly comfortable. A crying baby for the whole trip made things worse, so the crew managed very well with coping. The final thing I’d say was that there wasn’t enough food served during the flight.

Very good. Glad we had Premium for the flight out.

My flight from Montreal to Vancouver was fine, but on the flight from Vancouver to Seattle, the attendants forced me and my friend to check our small carry-on bags at the gate when others were able to carry on much larger bags. Then, when we arrived in Seattle, our bags didn't end up in baggage claim for over an hour and a half. The Air Canada baggage office was closed and locked, so eventually, after checking all the baggage claim carousels, we went to the Air Canada ticketing office...where they told us bags were just being dropped now. The almost-two-hour delay was absolutely unacceptable.

I find it hard to believe that Air Canada still cannot provide non dairy milks for teas and coffees even if they offer vegan food, if preordered. It is about time to stop discriminating against people who live a plant-based diet.

The Air Canada experience wasn’t bad per se. It was the Toronto airport experience that was truly horrific. Terrible crowd, control, poor signage, and power, hungry security people who felt the need to tear open gifts in a hasty and careless fashion, causing damage to my items because they don’t know how to read a damn x-ray. On top of that the attitude was completely disrespectful and callous. I left feeling completely violated.

The flight was delayed multiple times and I arrived hours later than I thought. I also had to change my schedule.

We were held in customs while someone was checking on all.passengers on flight. We were released with very little time to get to our gate! Very frustrating!

My direct flight was canceled for no reason. It was rebooked with a Montreal which added 7 hours to the trip due to a delay in Montreal.

I couldn’t fault my experience in any way. The plane was clean, comfortable, plenty of legroom and the food was great. I will definitely fly air Canada again.

No seat assignment . Last on board . Though I would not receive any boarding pass

Our flight from Windsor to Toronto had several delays so we had to drive to Toronto in order to catch our flight to London.

Horrible delays and confusion at all Air Canada counters. Flight was delayed well over 6 hours with little to no communication. Was o my offered a $15 food voucher and $200 Air Canada voucher—-neither of which did I need or have desire to use. Will never fly this airline again.

Horrible. Crew is not helpful. Lounge is sub standard and overcrowded. Getting to your plane is underwhelming “via a bus”. Worst experience I have had.

I liked nothing, my connection was missed after a 6hr delay, 3 of those hours were spent trapped on the tarmac going nowhere. They rebooked me with a different airline for the next day but never confirmed my seat, so I had to wait another entire day… after walking around an airport for the whole first day waiting for the front desk to open to get my ticket. A 19hr trip turned into an 80+hr trip. Of course, British airways has no actual customer complaint phone line, so I have heard nothing at all from the airline. Oh, and they lost my bag. This trip cost an additional $3000, several days of missed free time, and some agonizing discomfort from so much wandering around airports and venice trying to find replacement clothing. This sucked.

The online flight scheduler only assigned 3 hours to get from Gatwick to heathrow. This is not enough time for a normal transit between the two airports. I had to run and hire a taxi because the bus and train would take too long. After paying a 150 Taxi I arrived at the gate just before it closed.

Our flight BA638 was cancelled with very short notice. It was supposed to depart at 7:25am. We had left Chichester at 3:30am in order to make the flight, and we were notified of the cancellation while en route to LHR. We were told the cancellation was necessary because a plane had not been scheduled to be at LHR for this flight! We were rescheduled to BA636. This flight was supposed to depart at 11:00am but didn't actually take off until ~12:30pm. Consequently we arrived in Athens several hours late, missing out on half a day of our sightseeing time. We had booked transport with MyTransfers to pick us up at the Athens airport and drive us to our Hotel Adonis. I was unable to get a refund for this service because our flight was so delayed. They required 24 hour notice of pick up time changes. I instead had to pay for a taxi at the airport. I have tried to fill out a request for compensation online but have been unsuccessful. How can I get help for filing a claim?

I had to wait for 10 hours at the airport and no hotel accommodation was provided. That sucks big time.

They can't seem to deliver a delayed bag in less than a week. Is this the 19th century?

There was no entertainment offered or expected, so please disregard my readings of that component. The flight was fantastic. Efficient boarding, takeoff, and even early arrival!

Initially there was delays due to weather so we were grounded. Once we got off the ground, they were quick to turn of the seat belt sign and give us drinks and snacks. No complaints about the flight. It was very full.

The crew were very friendly and helpful. Also, the airline was very strict and not very helpful when I wanted to start by boarding from Heathrow airport instead of Glasgow international airport. I stayed 10 hours in the airport and no hotel or any form of compensation was provided. That sucks.
