New seaplane operation takes flight in the Bahamas – Travel Weekly

Posted: January 21, 2021 at 3:22 pm

The newest air service in the Bahamas is Coco Bahamas Seaplanes, which will operate a fleet of seaplanes to many of the country's Family Islands, such as the Abacos, Andros, Bimini, Eleuthera, the Exumas, Grand Bahama, Inagua, Long Island and San Salvador.

"This new option will increase access to our islands and allow travelers to experience the secluded paradise they are seeking right now," said Dionisio D'Aguilar, the Bahamas' minister of tourism and aviation.

"I am proud that in these challenging times a Bahamian company is prepared to invest in the future of tourism in the Bahamas," he said.

Brian Hew, CEO of Bahamas Seaplanes, said that recovery of the Family Islands "will be accelerated with the arrival of Coco and without the need for additional direct government investments to expand, rehabilitate or build new airports."

Hew also is the chairman and founder of Kamalame Cay, a private island resort off the coast of Andros.
