Grand Bahama International Airport, which was devastated by Dorian, expects direct flights between the Island and Fort Lauderdale International Airport to resume in mid-November. However, the Grand Bahama Island Tourism Board cautioned that the timing is subject to approval by U.S. regulators.
In a Wednesday press release, the cruise line said that Carnival Pride, which departed Baltimore Sunday with 2,400 passengers, will arrive in Freeport for the first of 39 port calls scheduled through the remainder of 2019. Carnival Elevation will visit Freeport on Oct. 13 and Carnival Freedom will follow two days later.
The cruise line says that by the end of 2018, 400,000 Carnival passengers will have visited Grand Bahama on 10 different ships sailing from homeports in the U.S.
