British Airways customers will soon be enjoying an improved airport experience when flying from Nassau airport in the Bahamas.

The final stage of redevelopment at Nassau’s Lynden Pindling International Airport is nearing completion and BA will be moving into a new international departures terminal on October 23.

Previous phases of the $410 million redevelopment project, which began in July 2009, have included a US departures terminal and an international arrivals terminal.

Paul Mooney, vice president of customer service for Mexico and the Caribbean, said: “Visitors come to the Bahamas to experience the beauty of the country and their Caribbean experience begins and ends at the airport. With the completion of this project, we will be able to offer our customers an airport experience that truly reflects what the region has to offer.”

As well as offering a better experience for passengers, the redeveloped airport will be capable of accommodating five million passengers a year, a capacity increase of over 50 per cent.
