Officials at the Northeast Florida Regional Airport have announced that it has sold out of exhibit space for the “Destination…Bahamas” event to be held June 4, from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. The regional event, free to the public, will highlight ease of travel to and from the Islands of the Bahamas.
The event is expected to attract not only the general aviation community but also many residents from the surrounding Northeast Florida area. General aviation pilots will have the opportunity to fly-in and be hosted by Galaxy Aviation. Special fuel prices and hotel rates have been secured for the event.
A 12,000-square-foot terminal will be transformed into a Bahamian island paradise. With the help of the Bahamas Ministry of Tourism, the Northeast Florida Regional Airport anticipates hosting exhibitors that will promote all the wonderful things offered in the Islands. Air charter companies will also be on hand showcasing their aircraft for travel to and from the Bahamas. Traditional Bahamian food will be offered for lunch and a live performance by a Bahamas Junkanoo band will entertain the attendees.
Seminars on flight planning, customs procedures and safety for “over water flight” will be conducted by the FAA and Department of Homeland Security.
