American Eagle Airlines is restarting service between Miami International Airport (MIA) and three destinations in the Bahamas from November 19, after a break of more than 15 years.

The airline, which is American Airlines’ regional sibling, is adding three-times-weekly service from MIA to Harbour Island (ELH); four-times weekly service to Treasure Cay, Abaco (TCB); and four-time weekly service to Governors Harbour (GHB) on that date. It will operate all the flights with 66-seat ATR 72 turboprops.


“American Eagle is delighted to begin service from our Miami hub to these three beautiful Bahamian destinations, serving them once again for the first time since the early 1990s,” says Peter Bowler, American Eagle’s president and CEO.

American Eagle’s schedule between Miami and Harbour Island calls for flight EGF4991 to depart MIA at 11:40 a.m. and arrive at ELH at 12:54 p.m. on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. The return flight, EGF4992, is timed to leave ELH at 1:24 p.m. and reach MIA at 2:47 p.m.

The airline’s schedule between Miami and Treasure Cay on Abaco calls for flight EGF4993 to leave MIA at 1:20 p.m. and land at TCB at 2:24 p.m., on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays. The return flight, EGF4994, is timed to depart TCB at 2:55 p.m. and land at MIA at 4:04 p.m.

American Eagle’s schedule between Miami and Governors Harbour calls for flight EGF4991 to depart MIA ta 11:40 a.m. on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays and reach GHB at 12:58 p.m. The return flight, EGF4991, is scheduled to leave GHB at 1:24 p.m. and arrive at MIA at 2:50 p.m. Note that the flights between MIA and GHB share the same flight numbers as those between MIA and ELH, but operate on different days of the week.

The regional carrie is also launching additional service from Miami to two existing destinations in the Bahamas on November 19. It is adding a second daily nonstop to Marsh Harbour (MHH) and resuming seasonal daily nonstop service to Exuma (GGT).

Together, American and American Eagle serve 58 destinations with 260 flights from their Miami hub.
