There are three airports on the island of Eleuthera
Eleuthera is approximately 250 miles east of the Florida coast and 50 miles east of Nassau, the capital of The Bahamas. Situated between the Atlantic Ocean on one side and the Caribbean Sea on the other
Governor’s Harbour Airport (GHB) — As the name suggests, GHB airport is situated just 15 minutes drive north of the settlement of Governor’s Harbour. This airport is mostly serviced by domestic airlines (such as Pineapple Air, Southern Air, and Bahamas Air), but Aztec Airways operates flights from Ft Lauderdale Executive Airport here several times weekly. Silver Airways operates a Saturday flight from Ft Lauderdale International Airport into GHB.
North Eleuthera Airport (ELH) — This airport is situated at the northern end of Eleuthera, just about an hour’s drive from Governor’s Harbour. Most flights originating from the U.S. land here, so it is worth checking out. Delta Airlines flies into ELH from Atlanta, American Airlines via Miami FL and Charlotte NC, Silver Airways from Ft Lauderdale International Airport, and Aztec Airways and Makers Air from Ft Lauderdale Executive Airport.
Car rental companies will meet you at either airport, but there is usually a surcharge for them to travel to North Eleuthera of around $60. This is still well worth it as a taxi will cost around $130 (each way).
Rock Sound Airport (RSD) — RSD is located in the south of Eleuthera, about 40 minutes drive from Governor’s Harbour, and is mostly serviced by domestic airlines.
Traveling through Nassau
Once you are booked to Nassau, you will need to make reservations on one of three local carriers (Pineapple Air, Southern Air Charters, or Bahamas Air). All three airlines fly to Governor’s Harbour Airport. There are regularly scheduled services for the 15 minute flight from Nassau to Governor’s Harbour in the morning, afternoon and evening, though Bahamas Air only operates on select days.
