An upward trend in arrivals is ushering in added airlift from major U.S. gateways to the Bahamas this coming winter.

American Airlines will add five new flights with a total of 453 seats to multiple islands beginning in December 2018. The carrier will introduce nonstop weekly flights from Chicago O'Hare to Nassau, two weekly seasonal flights from Miami to Freeport, Grand Bahama, and year-round service from Charlotte to North Eleuthera Airport and Marsh Harbour Airport in Abaco.

Delta is adding a second daily flight from JFK to Nassau, effective Oct. 1.

Bahamasair launched new service from Miami to South Bimini four times a week earlier this month.

On the attractions side, Bahamas Ride, the Bahamas' first ride-hailing mobile app, puts visitors in contact with licensed and vetted taxi drivers in Nassau. The app features automatic payment with debit or credit card, GPS tracking, a driver-rating system and a choice of three vehicles from standard (up to four riders) to large (six riders) and extra-large (10 or more riders).

Bahamas Ride plans to expand to Grand Bahama, Eleuthera, Abaco and the Exumas.

Upcoming events in the Bahamas include the 43rd Regatta Time in the Abacos June 24-July 3 and the Blue Freediving Competition on Long Island July 16-26
