Baggage Policies

Kindly note that the baggage belt at LPIA (Lynden Pindling International Airport) Domestic Terminal is operated by the Nassau Airport Development Company.  When customers check-in their bags and packages at our counter in Nassau, they are then placed on the baggage belt and is processed by Airport Authority after which they are distributed to the assigned airline to be placed on the aircraft.  The time it takes to process those bags and packages are out of Sky Bahamas control. We remind you that you should arrive at the airport ahead of checking time so that your bags can be processed to accompany to your destination
