The addition of Frontier Airlines to the growing number of air carriers servicing The Bahamas comes as a result of the ongoing drive by the Ministry of Tourism & Aviation and key industry partners to expand airlift to the destination.  A robust increase in airlift from major source markets figures as a key element in the Ministry’s overall strategy for tourism recovery.
