New Seaplane Service to the Abacos

Fort Lauderdale-based Tropic Ocean Airways today confirmed its inaugural two-day-a-week scheduled seaplane service to Hope Town, Great Abaco will begin on Valentine’s Day, Friday, February 14th.

Tropic Ocean Airways, which re-instituted regular seaplane service to the Bahamas in 2011, is partnering with Fort Lauderdale-based IJet Charters, to offer direct flights to Hope Town, a popular, but often time consuming trip for air travelers.

It’s anticipated the new Friday and Saturday service should be an instant hit with the thousands traveling monthly to and from a final destination in Hope Town. Jim Swieter of IJet Charters said the seaplane, a new eight-passenger Cessna Caravan Turboprop, which flies out of Sheltair at Fort Lauderdale International (FLL) greatly streamlines TSA screening processes and custom checks and can literally drop off guests directly on the beaches at Hope Town, eliminating the need for taxi and ferry transportation from the airport at Marsh Harbor. Tropic Ocean has also confirmed scheduled two-day-a-week service from Galaxy Aviation at Palm Beach International Airport will begin March 14th.
