First night flight at South Bimini Airport set for Thursday

In a continued effort to bring more visitors to Bimini, Resorts World Bimini said it has made investments in South Bimini Airport that will allow flights to land at night.

The upgrades at the airport mostly involve lighting. To mark the occasion, a flight with Bahamas Prime Minister Perry Christie is scheduled to arrive on a flight from Nassau to Bimini around 8:30 p.m. Thursday.

No airlines have regularly scheduled evening service to Bimini yet.

Resorts World Bimini, operated by Malaysian casino giant Genting Group, said the airport lights are part of a $150 million investment in the Bahamian islands that also includes an expansion of the airport runway, road improvements and the building of a new 350-room hotel.
