Delta Adds Daily Flights to George Town, ExumaPosted on December 2, 2015
The Exumas, a popular archipelago of 365 cays and islands in the Bahamas, are an exotic collection of dream destinations. Starting December 19th, the Exumas are even easier to get to since Delta Air Lines will fly daily non-stop flights from the Atlanta Hartsfield-Jackson Airport to George Town on Great Exuma. Residents of February Point, a gated master-planned gated community located on Great Exuma will be immediate beneficiaries of the expanded flight schedule.
Delta is the world’s second largest airline carrying over 120.6 million passengers each year. Atlanta is the airline’s largest hub, and a natural feeder airport for much of Delta’s network that includes 333 destinations in 64 countries on 6 continents. The new flights will connect the Bahamas with adventure seekers from around the world.
“We are very excited that the service to Exuma will now be operated daily, at more than double the current capacity. In a time when the airline industry is generally cutting back on frequencies and capacity, Delta’s latest announcement is proof positive that the Bahamas is and will continue to be a top destination worldwide for visitors,” said Joy Jibrilu, Director General, Bahamas Ministry of Tourism.

Split into three major areas: Great Exuma, Little Exuma and The Exuma Cays, each provides its own unique Bahamian experience. Along with the exclusive neighborhood of February Point, Great Exuma is home to the Sandals Resort and Emerald Bay golf course and marina, which continues to provide demand for the airline service.
Spanning 80 acres, February Point on Great Exuma offers an out-island lifestyle unlike any other. The private community is celebrating the grand opening of its exclusive new Beach Club and Marina in December, coinciding with the Delta expanded flights. February Point offers luxury vacation rentals as well as for sale condominiums, single-family homes and overwater residences just 20 minutes from the international airport and five minutes to the conveniences of Georgetown.
