Seaplane begins service to Abaco

ADVERTISEMENT

Ft. Lauderdale-based Tropic Ocean Airways began twice-a-week scheduled service to Hope Town, Great Abaco, on Fridays and Saturdays.



Tropic Ocean Airways, which re-instituted regular seaplane service to the Bahamas in 2011, is partnering with Ft. Lauderdale-based IJet Charters to offer direct flights to Hope Town.



Jim Swieter of IJet Charters said the seaplane, a new eight-passenger Cessna Caravan Turboprop that flies out of Sheltair at Fort Lauderdale International (FLL) streamlines TSA screening processes and custom checks and can literally drop off guests on the beach at Hope Town, eliminating the need for taxi and ferry from Marsh Harbor.

Tropic Ocean has also confirmed that scheduled twice-a-week service from Galaxy Aviation at Palm Beach International Airport will begin March 14.
