Fort Lauderdale Welcomes BermudAir as First Florida Destination

HAMILTON — Start-up carrier BermudAir, has expanded its horizons by commencing operations to three U.S. destinations. Late September saw the inclusion of a route to Fort Lauderdale, Florida, augmenting the existing northeast U.S. connections from Bermuda.BermudAir's Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport (FLL) flights operate six times a week. 

Meanwhile, the connection to Westchester County Airport (HBN) in New York is more frequent, with 12 weekly flights. Additionally, the Boston Logan International Airport (BOS) route sees a six times a week operation.

Focused on Premium Travel

Designed as a boutique airline, BermudAir primarily caters to upscale passengers, offering an all-business class experience. Travelers can soon anticipate a 30-seat, 1x1 layout with a distinct privacy barrier on the Embraer E175 aircraft, starting from November 1. However, a hitch in seat arrivals prompted the airline to momentarily operate with an 88-seat E175, restricting sales to 44-seats, guaranteeing aisle access for every passenger.

Bermuda Civil Aviation Authority awarded BermudAir its air operator’s certificate (AOC) in July, leading to the initiation of its flights at the end of August. This launch marks BermudAir as the inaugural locally rooted airline in Bermuda.

Fort Lauderdale Welcomes BermudAir

Expressing enthusiasm about being the primary Florida landing spot for BermudAir, Airport Director Mark Gale highlighted the unique nonstop connection to Bermuda, a route not currently offered by other commercial carriers at FLL.

Founder and CEO of BermudAir, Adam Scott, envisions the airline bridging "service gaps". He emphasizes offering well-scheduled, traveler-focused, hassle-free flights connecting the U.S. and Bermuda.
