Arriving in Turks and Caicos after a comfortable 2 hour flight from Grand Bahama.

Grand Bahama Island - On October 14th SkyBahamas, the Bahamian regional airline took an inaugural flight to Turks and Caicos Islands.  The Bahamas Weekly News Team and approximately 30 persons who are travel, business, and media partners were invited to join SkyBahamas management on a two-hour flight to sight-see on the beautiful city of Providenciales. Captains for the flight were Travis Stein and Blake Maura. On board offering first class SkyBahamas in-flight service was Jamal Evans.

While there, the group had lunch at Seven Stars resort where SkyBahamas’ CEO/President, Captain Randy Butler and Kevin Turnquest, Chairman of SkyBahamas had the opportunity to bring remarks on future plans to both the Turks and Caicos and Grand Bahama media about this initiative to commence non-stop flights from Grand Bahama Island to Turks and Caicos on a weekly basis.

According to Chairman of the Board of Sky Bahamas, Mr. Peter Turnquest, with the pending launch of its scheduled service into Turks and Caicos and its continuous adherence to its core value of a culture of safety and passionate, quality service to its existing destinations, Sky Bahamas is prepared to take the commercial travel industry to a new altitude.

“The Company is more than just about fancy words and well-crafted gimmicks.   Those destinations who have come on board with us know very well that the proof is in the pudding, and we will continue to soar to new heights,” Mr. Turnquest said.

“Our plan is to no longer be just the regional airline of The Bahamas, but we at Sky are strategically positioning ourselves to be the industry leader of the Caribbean region.”
