RIC flights to Bahamas returning in November

Looking for a quick getaway to Grand Bahama Island? Beginning later this year, you'll be able to make the nonstop trip from Richmond International Airport.

Vision Airlines announced last week that it would begin twice-weekly service from RIC to Grand Bahama Island Nov. 3. The airline also announced that similar service to the island would begin in Baltimore, Louisville, Raleigh/Durham and Fort Lauderdale.

RIC has not offered direct service to the island since January 2004. Rates for the new service will be available from $99 per person.

"These new routes are consistent with Vision Airlines' business plan of providing great, low-cost service to leisure destinations" said David Meers, Vision Airlines, Senior Vice President and COO of Vision Airlines. "People that have never visited will be surprised at how close and convenient Grand Bahama Island is to the east coast of Florida."
