New Airport Breaks Ground in the Bahamas

Creation of a new resort destination in the Bahamas recently grew one step closer as officials broke ground on a 7,300-foot runway and international airport terminal on the island of Mayaguana. At the southeastern edge of the Bahamas, 350 miles from Nassau, the island is currently served by Bahamasair, with three scheduled weekly flights. The new international airport, slated to open late this year, will accommodate up to Boeing 737s aircraft for scheduled and charter flights. Mayaguana will initially include a luxury boutique resort with modern facilities, restaurants, spa, yoga and fitness center, marina village, private villas and four designated nature preserves.
