Lynden PindlingInternational Airport

It’s easy to overlook an airport as being part of a vacation destination. But since the airport is the first thing you see when you arrive in a new place – and the last thing you see before you go home – it’s an important part of your vacation experience! The Lynden Pindling International Airport in Nassau is well-stocked with shops and services, beautifully decorated, and the perfect place to welcome you to Paradise or send you home with a smile on your face. Enjoy a meal or a cocktail, browse for unique gifts and souvenirs, or extend your vacation to the very last minute on one of the outdoor decks before you board your departing flight.

Here’s everything you need to know about the Lynden Pindling International Airport.


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

Nassau Paradise Island is one of the few Caribbean destinations providing preclearance entry into the United States. This allows passengers returning from the Bahamas to bypass customs processes upon entering their U.S. destination. Through preclearance, all international immigration, customs and agriculture inspections that are usually performed upon arrival back to the U.S. are completed at the Nassau airport prior to departure. Once your plane lands, you can immediately head home or to your connecting flight.

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.
