Flights Between Florida and Abacos

We have always flown with Yellow Air Taxi from Fort Lauderdale to Treasure Cay, Abacos; however we have learned that Yellow Air is no more. Does anyone know of another airline that flies directly to Treasure Cay? Our boat is in Green Turtle Cay so Treasure Cay is preferable to Marsh Harbour; however Marsh H is anther option. We just don't want to have to go through Nassau if at all possible.

Re: Flights between Florida and Abacos

I kept my boat at Green Turtle for a while, and yes, it's generally cheaper to fly directly into Treasure Cay since taking a Taxi from Marsh Harbour is fairly expensive. ($70 two years ago when I did a crew switch in G.T. instead of Marsh Harbour)

I booked my flights through AA, but there are other carriers. I'm sure all the popular travel booking sites will provide the options on the days you are looking for. I've almost always flown through Miami and never Nassau.

Twin Air still doing that run? Didn't know YAT had died, used to take it to North Eleuthra a lot.
