Delta suspends some routes to Bahamas indefinitely due to damage from Hurricane Dorian

Delta Air Lines has decided to suspend service indefinitely to Freeport and Marsh Harbour in the Bahamas due to damage from Hurricane Dorian in September.

Atlanta-based Delta plans to discontinue seasonal service from Atlanta to Grand Bahama International Airport in Freeport and year-round service to Leonard Thompson International Airport in Marsh Harbour. It had already suspended service during the hurricane and now does not plan to resume the routes.

The airline said it will continue service to Nassau in the Bahamas, with year-round flights from Atlanta and New York’s JFK International Airport and seasonal flights from Boston, Detroit, Fort Lauderdale and Minneapolis-St. Paul.

Delta says it will also still operate flights to the Bahamas’ Exuma International Airport and seasonal flights to North Eleuthera Airport from Atlanta.
