Regular Scheduled Flights

The most common route taken to Long Island is through Nassau (NAS), on the island of New Providence. Most major air carriers have scheduled flights to Nassau (NAS). Once you have arrived in Nassau, Southern Air Charters and Bahamas Air offer scheduled flights from Nassau (NAS) to Long Island.

There are two airports on Long Island. Whenever possible, we recommend flying into Stella Maris Airport (SML) because it is just a 20 minutes taxi ride from the resort. Deadmans Cay Airport (LLI) is a one-hour taxi transfer from Cape Santa Maria.

Southern Air Charters typically flies into Stella Maris Airport, Bahamas Air only flies into Deadman’s Cay Airport. Southern Air Charters and Bahamas Air recommend that you leave 2-3 hours between your connecting flights.
