Established in 2001 by Rex and Shandrice Rolle, Western Air is a privately-owned airline, headquartered at San Andros International Airport, Bahamas, and serves as a pivotal connector throughout the Bahamas with plans for international expansion. Boasting a mixed fleet of Embraer EMB 145 jet aircraft and Saab 340As, the airline ensures a smooth and reliable travel experience for its passengers, while also embedding a familial ethos into its operations, with pivotal roles held by the founding family members.
With a minimum of 40 flights daily across the Bahamas, Western Air provides robust connectivity within the country, and harbors ambitions to expand its footprints to international destinations like Haiti, Jamaica, Turks & Caicos, and Florida in the USA. Freeport’s Grand Bahama International Airport and Nassau’s Lynden Pindling International Airport serve as significant hubs for the airline, ensuring optimal service across its routes.
The airline’s fleet demonstrates a commitment to comfort and reliability, operating with Embraer EMB 145 jet aircraft and Saab 340As. Notably, a deal for additional EMB 145s jets in 2018 bolstered Western Air’s capacity, ensuring readiness to meet the growing airlift demands and to facilitate future expansion plans, while maintaining the high standards of passenger service and punctuality that the airline is renowned for.
