Lynden Pindling International Airport in Nassau Paradise Island

Lynden Pindling International Airport

Well-stocked with shops and services, beautifully decorated, and a quick drive from our hotels and resorts, Lynden Pindling International Airport in Nassau is the perfect place to welcome you to Paradise or send you home with a smile on your face. Enjoy a meal, coffee, or cocktail, browse for unique gifts and souvenirs, or soak up just a few more precious moments of Bahamian sunshine on one of the outdoor decks before boarding your departing flight. 


The Lynden Pindling International Airport is the first airport outside of the U.S. to implement TSA PreCheck. Eligible travelers can pass through security more quickly, and spend more time relaxing.

Nassau Paradise Island is also one of the few Caribbean destinations with preclearance entry into the United States. Passengers returning from The Bahamas can bypass customs upon entering their U.S. destination. Through preclearance, all international immigration, customs, and agriculture inspections that are usually performed upon arrival in the U.S. are completed at the Nassau airport prior to departure.

Global Entry

Lynden Pindling International Airport is one of the select airports offering Global Entry. Global entry is a U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) program that allows expedited clearance for pre-approved, low-risk travelers upon arrival in the United States. Members of this program can enter the United States throughout automatic kiosks located at the airport.
