In either case —be sure to follow our one simple travel rule if flying in and out of Nassau to Long Island—we call it our “12:30 RULE”. In short—when looking into flights into Nassau (NAS), be sure to book a flight that arrives by 12-12:30 at the latest as most of the connections to Stella Maris Airport (SML) depart Nassau at 2pm. On the outbound, do not book anything that leaves Nassau before 12:30-1:00pm as you will take the morning flight that leaves SML at 9 and arrives NAS at 9:45. You really need to allow 3 hours in Nassau as you clear US customs there before you board your flight.
