Tips (and Updates)
022814: From Thierry Pouille, Air Journey.
I just returned from the Bahamas this past week-end with the Bahamas Treasure Hunt. We received excellent service and I can attest that the $50.00 arrival fee is compensated by the ongoing promotion from the Bahamas Tourist office with a $150.00 credit per plane.

These are upcoming private aviation trips to the Bahamas sponsored or escorted by an international service provider.
