American Airlines has initiated nonstop service to Governor's Harbour Airport in Eleuthera from its main hub in Miami, serving as the primary gateway for all its flights to the Caribbean and Latin America. The new Miami-Governor's Harbour route will operate year-round on Tuesdays and Saturdays.

As per the Bahamas Ministry of Tourism, Governor's Harbour Airport has undergone recent renovations, enhancing its arrival and departure facilities. This improvement has enabled airlines like American to commence commercial service, as reported by travelandleisure.com.

Eleuthera is a secluded paradise renowned for its upscale resorts and pink sand beaches, with the capital, Governor's Harbor, situated centrally on the 110-mile-long island. American Airlines also offers twice-daily flights between Miami and North Eleuthera Airport, one of the three airports serving the entire island (alongside Governor's Harbour Airport and Rock Sound International Airport).

In addition to Governor's Harbour and North Eleuthera, American Airlines flies to other Bahamian destinations such as Nassau, New Providence; Freeport, Grand Bahama; Georgetown, Exuma; and Marsh Harbour, Abaco.

"We are thrilled to inaugurate our sixth destination in the Bahamas, Governor's Harbour, further reaffirming our dedication to this pristine paradise. This new route signifies the next phase of expansion as we continue to bolster American's presence in the Caribbean and Atlantic, where we proudly hold the distinction of being the largest U.S. airline," stated Jose Maria Giraldo, Managing Director of Mexico, Caribbean, and Central America Operations.

American Airlines is continuing to expand its Caribbean routes, offering up to three flights daily from Miami to Anguilla, Turks and Caicos, and beyond. The airline also has plans to introduce numerous new international routes this year, including flights from its main hub in Dallas-Fort Worth to Brisbane and Rio de Janeiro.
