American Eagle suspends flights to Governors Harbour Airport

From Caribbean360.com:

ELEUTHERA, Bahamas, March 4, 2010 - American Eagle has suspended flights from Miami International Airport to one of the airports on the Bahamian island of Eleuthera because of recent changes there.

The airline said that it would stop landing at Governors Harbour Airport (GHB) indefinitely, just three months after starting the Miami to GHB non-stop flights.

"Once we receive an update from the government on the GHB airport, we will resume our operations to this airport and advise accordingly," said American Eagle's regional sales manager for the Bahamas and Florida, Tracie Hoo-Glinton in an email sent to the airline's travel partners.

Sandals Emerald Bay Officially Opens

This is the former Four Seasons property that went belly up:

Following a soft-opening on January 22, the resort additionally hosted more than 30 top tour operators and travel agents for a first-hand look at the newest property in the Sandals Resorts portfolio.

"This is an exciting moment in the history of Sandals Resorts," said Gordon 'Butch' Stewart, chairman and founder of Sandals Resorts, in a written statement. "For years we have been committed to providing the very best Luxury Included experience in the Caribbean, and the grand opening of our latest resort only further proves our dedication to exceeding our guests' expectations."

Royal Palm Resort & Suites closed

Another hotel closure:

NASSAU, Bahamas -- A Bahamian hotel operator has closed one of his resort properties as the recession slashes occupancy rates across the vast archipelago.

The 50-room Royal Palm Resort & Suites was closed in early November by hotelier Mario Donato, and guests with reservations were moved to the Xanadu Beach Resort&Marina on Grand Bahama Island, which Donato also owns, according to Xanadu spokeswoman Tiffany Anderson.

The closure comes as tourism struggles in the region.

Earlier this year, the Four Seasons Resort Great Exuma in the Bahamas and the Nikki Beach Resort&Spa in Turks and Caicos both closed down.

Couple this with the news of new rooms opening up in Martinique! Obviously projects that were under way as the crisis started. As the article mentions, "Martinique's visitor numbers totaled 280,000 through July, a 7% drop over the same period in 2008." 7% is a huge number when talking about statistics like travel that have probably only moved in one direction for the last 50 or 60 years.

Savor the hidden treasure of The Bahamas

By Michele Jarvie, Canwest News Service, September 27, 2008
Under the cover of night, they lay in wait for merchant ships and plodding Spanish galleons filled with gold. Hundreds of islands, each with tiny cays and channels, were perfect hiding places for Blackbeard and other pirates who plundered ships all along the Bahamas in the late 1600s.

Henry Morgan liked to lurk in the shallows around Andros. Captain Kidd favoured the Exumas, and Anne Bonney and William Catt commandeered Cat Island. Most of the pirates were captured or killed by the mid-1700s, but evidence of the Bahamas' buccaneering past is evident today in hundreds of wrecks off the Abacos islands, Grand Bahama Island and Bimini. Colonial forts, now tourist sites, surround Nassau like sentinels, as if on watch for the black flags of ruin.

Most tourists visit the paradises of Nassau or Grand Bahama Island, but there is another side to the Bahamas to consider adding to an itinerary. Visiting the Out Islands puts the region's history into perspective.
