    Kamalame Cay Private Island Resort announced (14-Jan-2021) Bahamas will host a new domestic amphibious carrier, named COCO Bahama Seaplanes, effective Feb-2021. Bahamas‘ Minister of Tourism and Aviation Dionisio D’Aguilar stated: “I am pleased to welcome a new aircraft option to The Bahamas that will increase access to our islands and allow travellers to experience the secluded paradise they are looking for right now”. COCO Bahama Seaplanes CEO Brian Hew stated: “Recovery of the Family Islands will be accelerated with the arrival of COCO and importantly, without the need for additional direct government investments to expand, rehabilitate or build new airports… [and] reducing the burden on the government to fly to small, unprofitable markets with large aircraft”. Mr Hew is also the chairman and founder of Kamalame Cay Private Island Resort off of Andros. BahamasAir chairman Tommy Turnquest stated: “The arrival of COCO Bahama Seaplanes is another important milestone for the Bahamian airline industry as we look for new ways to expand the services we provide to our residents and guests without additional financial burden on the Bahamian government”.
