Nassau, Bahamas - Officials of the Ministry of Tourism and Aviation, The Bahamas Air Traffic Controllers Union and  various Aviation stakeholders participated in a one-day National Aviation forum at the Wyndham Nassau Resort on Tuesday, April 18. The stakeholders met to discuss ways to strengthen aviation services in the country. The Government is currently holding discussions with the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) with the view to acquire funds to improve and expand aviation in The Bahamas. It is anticipated that the funds would be used to implement safety regulations in the industry and also to expand night flight services to the Family Islands among other plans.
